Newcastle have recalled young defender Remie Streete from his loan spell at Port Vale amid a mounting injury crisis.

The 20-year-old, who has made three appearances for the League One side, agreed to extend his stay until January last week, but with Magpies boss Alan Pardew having lost Steven Taylor and Fabricio Coloccini and Mike Williamson still working his way back to fitness, Streete has been summoned back to Tyneside.

A club spokesman said: "Remie Streete has been recalled from his loan spell with League One side Port Vale.

"Last week the 20-year-old, who has made three appearances for the Valiants, agreed to extend his stay at Vale Park until 4th January 2015."

Taylor missed Sunday's 2-0 Barclays Premier League victory at West Brom - the club's fifth in a row in all competitions - with an unspecified knock, but Pardew expects him to have recovered by the time QPR arrive at St James' Park following the international break.

Coloccini limped off at the Hawthorns with a calf problem having scored his side's second goal.

Pardew has enjoyed success with throwing his young players in at the deep end in recent weeks with Paul Dummett, Mehdi Abeid, Rolando Aarons and Ayoze Perez all shining, although Aarons is himself facing another spell on the sidelines with a recurrence of a hamstring problem.
