Ryan Taylor targets Newcastle right-back chance

With Danny Simpson out for the start of the season, Ryan Taylor wants to make the right-back spot at Newcastle United his own.

While Taylor and Simpson are close pals, opportunity knocks for the 25-year-old, with Chris Hughton knowing he has specialist right-back to start the season with and allowing him to concentrate on other transfer targets.

Taylor told the Evening Chronicle: "I've always said my position is at right-back.

"I've played there a lot of the time throughout my career and for the England Under-21s.

"That's where I see myself, but if one day the gaffer turned round and asked me to do a job in a different position, I'd be happy to do that.

"But I'm 25 now and I need to settle down into one position."
