Taylor came on in the 88th minute after Mike Williamson got sent off in Newcastle's 0-0 draw with Aston Villa on Saturday.

Taylor will likely get the start next week with Williamson suspended for one game. The matchup is an excellent one with Crystal Palace coming to St. James' Park, so fantasy owners looking for cheap defender options should look Taylor's way.

Newcastle is not looking to send Taylor on loan this January, according to Sky Sports.

Taylor hasn't been in the action for Newcastle since the first match of the season after a red card ban and then a hamstring injury in training. Manager Alan Pardew said that Taylor is fit, but will need to work his way back into the lineup.

Taylor (hamstring) could play in Saturday's Premier League match against Liverpool, the Daily Mail reports.

Taylor has not played for Newcastle since suffering his hamstring injury in training in the third week of September. It would be a nice boost for Newcastle, who are likely to play without captain Fabricio Coloccini, who picked up a thigh injury while on international duty for Argentina.
