Taylor: I Would Love To Play For Swansea City

Taylor: I Would Love To Play For Swansea City

Wrexham left back Neil Taylor says he would love to join Swansea City if they made an offer for the youngster.

The 21 year-old was first linked with a move to the Swans during the January transfer window and it seems ever since then the local media have been fuelling most of the speculation linking him with a move to South Wales.

Taylor has served Wales at every level - under 17s, under 19s, under 21s and made his senior debut in the 2-0 defeat against Croatia last week.

A move from Non-League to Championship could certainly help his international career if he was able to push for a first team place, and Taylor said:

"Obviously I would love to play at Swansea,"

"It is a good team and a Welsh one as well.

"I was proud to be at Wrexham and proud that I have now been able to play for my country. If I can stay in Wales and move to a bigger club, that would be great.

"If they were interested, Swansea would definitely be a club I`d want to talk to. I have watched them a few times and they play great football.

"That`s the way I like to play as well so they would really suit me. I know a few of the lads down there from the Wales set-up as well so it would be a great place for me to go."


Taylor has now left Wrexham after his contract expired, as he now looks to test himself at a higher level. He added:

"I`m out of contract now so I don`t know what my future holds," he explained. "I know as much as anyone else right now.

"It`s early doors and all the clubs are going on their holidays. Managers are still putting their plans together so I have to wait a while.

"I`m sure I will find out what`s happening over the next month or so. But, for now, I just have to enjoy my summer and keep as fit as I can."

Making it clear his spell at Wrexham is definitely over, he continued: "It`s time for me to test myself at a higher level. That`s the main reason I left Wrexham.

"I told the gaffer that and he understood. You have to try and play at the highest level possible.

"I`m still young and it`s a good time for me to try and step up. I want to play at a higher level and it`s my aim to do that as soon as possible."


Chairman Huw Jenkins also commented on a possible move for Taylor, and said it's up to the manager if he thinks he's ready for the Championship.

'He is a young Welsh international, which is always something that appeals to us, and all the reports are that he has a lot of promise in him,'

'We have watched him in the past and we have also got Alan Curtis who knows him, so we are fully aware of the player.

'The question is whether, in Paulo's eyes, someone like Neil Taylor is ready to play first-team football for us. As with all players like this, that is the decision you have to make.'

Jenkins says we might not need a left back but signing him could be a good investment for the future.
