Toon allegedly after Left Back Neil Taylor

Post  Guest on Sun Jun 05, 2011 7:40 pm

Newcastle United are allegedly set to take Swansea’s Neil Taylor via a £1m buy-out clause in his contract.

Allegedly (and don’t you just love it when I start an article with that) we have no less than ‘swooped’ over to Welsh Wales and are about to complete the signing of newly promoted Swansea’s Neil Taylor.

I can’t personally be having with this. Forget the speculative aspect of this for a moment, but we simply can’t employ any more Taylors. We already have Saylor and Raylor – do we really want a Naylor too?

Anyway, the 22 year-old is listed as a left-back or left-sided midfielder and has spent his senior career at Wrexham and Swansea after leaving the Manchester City youth programme at 15. Being a Taff, he has also figured in the Wales youth squad a few times and has now stepped up to senior level with 3 caps to his name.

Swansea bought him for £150,000 from Wrexham in 2010 but apparently he has a £1m buy-out clause in his contract, the finding of which by Newcastle has supposedly ‘baffled and infuriated’ Swansea.

We are supposedly fixing him up on a four year deal within the next two weeks.

Now, beware! As far as I can tell this speculation started in The Mirror (the newspaper that is, not the bathroom one where I make myself beautiful) and is backed up by “someone having heard from Neil Taylor’s best mate” on various forums, so treat it as cautiously as you would a bag of angry vipers.

I suppose the one bit that makes sense about it is that a left-back is what we’d need if Enrique is off this summer, but I guess we’ll find out if there’s any truth in the rumour in due course.
