Harper admits emergency loan market in Newcastle sights

Newcastle United goalkeeper Steve Harper admits any keeper injury will force the club into the emergency loan market.

Having returned to the side at the expense of Shay Given, who has suffered another groin injury, Harper has only Fraser Forster as cover, with Tim Krul on loan at Falkirk, the Scottish club.

"Even the two younger lads we've got are injured at the moment," Harper said. "I'm sure they'd have to go down the emergency route if anything was to happen to me."
