The Rumour

Tottenham and WEST HAM are ready to test Newcastle United’s resolve to hang onto their central defender Steven Taylor.

With Ledley King’s knee injury showing no signs of clearing up, Spurs boss Harry Redknapp will monitor Taylor’s performances when he leads the England Under-21 team in the European Championship finals next month and decide whether he could in alongside former Newcastle defender Jonathan Woodgate.

Hammers boss Gianfranco Zola believes he could land the Toon favourite for around £4million – although Newcastle will be holding out for far more.

The Analysis

The expected exodus from St James’s Park will begins shortly with some mercenary players looking to keep up the luxury lifestyle on crazy obscene wages, however I don’t put Steven Taylor in that category and i feel that the London born Newcastle lad may well try to get the club back into the Premier League even if he is targeted by the likes of West Ham and Spurs.

The 23 year old centre back has already racked up over 150 appearances for the Magpies and any shortcoming he has as a defender he makes up with determination and guts and should have become an full England international by now.

The Likelihood

Taylor to Spurs: I am confident he will stick it out on the north-east.
