Newcastle United boss Kevin Keegan says Abdoulaye Faye's return is a huge boost to his team.

"I am delighted to have Abdoulaye back," said Keegan. "I have been very impressed with both him and Habib Beye. They both played a part in Senegal's tournament and now have a role to play here.

"As far as Abdoulaye is concerned, he is a very good professional and he has done a very good job here. He is a big lad and we certainly need some height in the team at the moment. But it is not only his height, he has great experience as well."
