Bye-Beye for Newcastle? Defender could miss crunch clash leaving Shearer with just three at the back
Newcastle could go into next weekend's critical final game of the season with only three fit defenders after it was revealed Habib Beye is suffering with a hamstring injury.
David Edgar will be drafted in at right back at Aston Villa if Senegal star Beye is ruled out. Manager Alan Shearer has succeeded in his bid to keep Joey Barton away from the club for the rest of the season.
His suspension was extended at a board meeting.
