Newcastle put Steven Taylor on the transfer list
For Sale sign hung around defender’s neck
Sky Sports News’ BREAKING NEWS ticker is, for once, displaying something of note. The infamous ‘Sky sources’ understand Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor has been transfer listed by manager Chris Hughton.
Taylor, who’s missed the start of the Prem campaign after dislocating his shoulder in pre-season, is out of contract next summer and was in talks with the Toon over a four year, £40k p/w deal.
According to 24-year-old’s ‘people’, however, that’s peanuts for a player who has the honour of owning one England ‘B’ team cap, and they’re looking for upwards of £60k.
It seems Newcastle have been left with little choice but to put him up for sale and hope for a buyer before the transfer window slams shut next Tuesday.
