London - Newcastle defender Steven Taylor confirmed on Friday that he will miss the rest of the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon.

Taylor sustained the injury during his side's 3-3 draw with Burnley at St James' Park in the Premier League on Thursday.

The Magpies' caretaker manager John Carver said after the match that he didn't expect Taylor to play again this term and 28-year-old centre-back used his official personal account on social media website Sportlobster to say: "Gutted to say I'm going to be out for the season.

"I ruptured my Achilles in the last game. Thankfully it wasn't the one I did a few years ago.

"I'll have an operation on it on Wednesday, but won't make it back now for the rest of this season.

"I know what to do in the rehab from last time and will come back fitter and stronger than before."
