Newcastle After Both Neil Taylor And Shane Long

Post  Guest on Mon Jun 06, 2011 11:56 pm

Lee Ryder, probably the best local reporter on Tyneside, is confirming in the Newcastle Evening Chronicle today, the news that Newcastle are after Swansea’s Neil Taylor and Reading striker Shane Long is correct.

It’s always hard to know which transfer stories are true but the news yesterday that Newcastle would be signing Swansea defender Neil Taylor for £1M seems accurate.

Newcastle somehow found out one of the most improved players in the Championship last season, has a £1M buy-out clause in his contract.

Swansea are infuriated about it, but exactly why that;s the case we’re not sure – they shouldn’t have put that clause in if they didn’t want another club to exercise the option.

We know Reading boss Brian McDermott is a close friend of Alan Pardew – is already resigned to losing his Irish International striker, a natural poacher of goals, if ever we saw one.

Of course the big news about Neil Taylor is that he was sent off after just 90 seconds of Swansea’s play-off semi-final against Nottingham Forest, but Swansea still got through and eventually beat Reading 4-2 in the play-off final at Wembley.

It seems almost certain that Taylor will sign for Newcastle and £5.3M for Yohan Cabaye and Neil Taylor is just excellent business by Newcastle, especially in these difficult times, and they exercised buy-out clauses in each of those players’ contracts. Cool.

While Newcastle have been linked with some big players so far in the transfer window, don’t be surprised if Newcastle bring in a couple of almost unknown players too.

Cheick Tiote wasn’t well known at all when he arrived on Tyneside, and look what that lad did last season for the side.
