Newcastle boss Pardew turns to rookie Kadar

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is calling up Tamar Kadar for their clash with Norwich City on Saturday.

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is calling up Tamar Kadar for their clash with Norwich City on Saturday.

Pardew may include Kadar in his match-day 18 for the trip to Norwich on Saturday after Steven Taylor and Fabricio Coloccini were both injured in the defeat by Chelsea three days ago.

The Hungarian, who was signed in 2008, has seen his Newcastle career blighted by injuries. But he may get his chance because Taylor needs surgery on his achilles and is out for the season while captain Coloccini faces at least two weeks on the sidelines with a thigh strain.

Kadar is unlikely to start with James Perch, who came on against Chelsea, set to stay in central defence.
