Canaries boss Chris Hughton was in charge at St James’ PArk during their season in the Championship in 2009-10 and he was the driving force behind their return to the top flight, and Taylor was a staple in the side that helped them bounce back at the first time of asking.
The 28-year-old has featured only four times this season under Alan Pardew after overcoming a lengthy injury that has kept him on the sidelines for most of the campaign, but he now faces a lengthy battle to win his place back in the starting XI.
Mike Williamson’s impressive form alongside Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa in central defensive positions have helped boost the Magpies up the table to keep them within touching distance of the coveted European spots, and they also have skipper Fabricio Coloccini to come back from injury soon too.
Hughton wants to reunite Taylor with his former colleague Sebastian Bassong at Norwich but is unsure if Newcastle are willing to sell.
