Steven Taylor appears to be nearing decision time, the Newcastle centre back is yet to be offered a contract he feels matches his salary expectations and this could lead to a summer bidding war, or alternatively he could leave for free in the summer of 2009?
Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor is becoming more and more frustrated with the club over a new deal. The highly rated defender is upset that talks have not been reopened with the club about a new contract.
It is reported that both Arsenal and Liverpool are monitoring the situation at the club as the player’s contract is up in the summer of 2009 and therefore he could leave for as little as £4m when this season comes to a close (The Sun)
Having put in some solid displays in recent weeks the London born defender is reportedly peeved that he hasn’t had his contract negotiations re-opened. Maybe Kevin Keegan has other irons in the fire? Maybe the 22 year old wants more cash? Either way come the summer the defender may be on offer on the cheap to prevent a move further down the road for free! Do the Toon Army faithful value him highly and do fans of Arsenal and Liverpool see Taylor as a good signing to make?
