NEWCASTLE United are currently in the process of signing Matthew Kilgallon from rival Championship side Sheffield United.

The move comes in correlation with the sale of highly rated defender Steven Taylor who has been given a price tag of �7million plus. Taylor has attracted attention from Premier League sides after impressing on the international stage as an England U21.

A move for Kilgallon is likely to occur as the Bramall Lane centre-back becomes a free agent at the end of next season.
