Pic Special: Ryan's Ready
Ryan Taylor is in contention for a comeback at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, more than two years after he last kicked a ball for the first team.
The versatile defender has suffered two cruciate ligament injuries, last appearing for United in August 2012 against Atromitos in a Europa League qualifier at St. James' Park.
But, having fought back from those devastating blows - and proved his fitness for the Magpies' second string in a clutch of recent displays - manager Alan Pardew revealed on Friday that Taylor will be part of the Newcastle squad which travels to White Hart Lane this weekend.
And so it was no surprise that Taylor had an extra spring in his step at United trained at their Benton headquarters on Friday morning.
