Newcastle offer Taylor to Man Utd in Macheda loan swap

Newcastle United have made a sensational loan swap offer for Manchester UnitedFederico Macheda.

The News of the World says Toon have asked Manchester United about a shock loan swap that would see defender Steven Taylor exchanged for hitman Macheda.

Toon bosses are worried about their striking options for the remainder of the season, as the club attempt to make an immediate return to the Premier League.

Central defender Matthew Kilgallon is expected to move to Newcastle next month from Sheffield United.

That would allow the Toon to loan 23-year-old Taylor to United - who are in need of temporary defensive cover - with Macheda heading in the opposite direction.
