Newcastle blocked recalling Lascelles from Forest

Newcastle United have been told they cannot play Jamaal Lascelles in the remaining games of the season.

The Evening Chronicle says Lascelles' contract with Nottingham Forest runs through the play-off season in the Championship which would have allowed him to play in the promotion shoot-out had they made the top six.

Contractually, Newcastle are unable to release him during the regular Premier League season meaning he can't come to the rescue for suspension hit United.

The Magpies had both Daryl Janmaat and Mike Williamson sent off in the 3-0 loss to Leicester City and both are now suspended for the next two games.
