Newcastle United's injury problems continue to mount up ahead of Saturday's game against Bournemouth.

Defender Massadio Haidara is doubtful for the club's visit to the Goldsands Stadium after suffering a groin problem playing for the Under-21s last night.

United are also assessing Rob Elliot's thigh injury before making an expected appeal to the Premier League for an emergency goalkeeper loan.

Here, we explain the rules governing such a move.

Newcastle are also without No 1 Tim Krul and Karl Darlow, and Freddie Woodman, on standby to play against Bournemouth, came through last night's 2-0 Under-21 Premier League win over Aston Villa at St James's Park unscathed.

Meanwhile, defender Jamaal Lascelles says he's happy to play a waiting game at Newcastle as he attempts to prove himself at the club.
