Swansea's Neil Taylor seeks Newcastle move arbitration

Post  1892NUFF on Tue Jul 12, 2011 11:00 pm

Swansea City defender Neil Taylor has written to the Premier League to help resolve the dispute over his possible move to Newcastle United.

BBC Sport Wales understands the 22-year-old Wales left-back's case has now been referred to an arbitration panel.

The Magpies are thought to have offered £1m for Taylor, which they believe triggers a clause allowing them to approach and sign the player.

But Swansea insist that the clause only allows talks to take place.

No date has yet been set for a hearing which could have wider implications for clubs and players who have agreed similar clauses.

A further twist in the situation is that Swansea have made a bid of around £1.5m for Newcastle midfielder Wayne Routledge, with that also yet to be resolved.

Swansea City have previously rejected Newcastle's bid for Taylor, believing the three-cap Wales man is worth more than has been offered.

Taylor was a key part of the Swansea side which won promotion to the Premier League in May, making 32 appearances for Brendan Rodgers' side last season - including the 4-2 play-off final win over Reading at Wembley.

Swansea signed Taylor as a free agent in June 2010 after his contract expired with Wrexham, although the Blue Square Bet Premier side did get £150,000 compensation as the player is under 24 years old.

Wrexham are also due 10% of any future transfer fee profit and will watch for any decision from the arbitration panel with interest.

I'd like to think we can get this lad because he's obviously highly rated and for that price, he will be a snip and a potential asset.
