Toon defender Rozehnal joins Lazio on loan

Newcastle defender David Rozehnal has joined Lazio on loan until the end of the season.

The Premier League club this evening confirmed on their website that the Czech Republic international, who only arrived at St James' Park in the summer, will spend the remainder of the campaign with the Serie A club.

Rozehnal, 27, has been a regular for the Magpies, making 21 appearances this season.

The defender has been deployed mainly in midfield since Kevin Keegan's arrival, with Steven Taylor and Claudio Cacapa preferred in central defence.

'The offer came shortly before the deadline, but we managed to finish the deal,' said his agent Pavel Ziko.

Rozehnal is expected to move permanently in the summer.
