Swansea Won't Sell Taylor Unless Price Is Right

Swansea City are holding out for the right price for Neil Taylor, despite reports suggesting he has a clause in his contract which allows him to talk to other clubs if they make a high enough bid.

Newcastle United are showing a keen interest in the young left back, who was playing in the Conference the season before last, but he has impressed for the Swans in the Championship last year and is attracting interest from a number of clubs.

Despite some reports which suggest we'd been unable to do anything to hold onto the player due to a clause, the Evening Post today believe that no clause actually exists, allowing Swansea City to reject bids, such as the 1m they received from the Magpies.

The Evening Post also believe that manager Brendan Rodgers is bitterly disappointed that Taylor is looking to leave the club already, after signing a 3-year contract last Summer. Of course he would be, as he sees the 22 year-old as a big player for the future.

Neil Taylor could make the wrong move far too early in his career. Far too many players have left the Swans and regretted it. The only players in the past number of years to improve their career after leaving the Swans is Sam Ricketts. Taylor would surely struggle for regular games at St James' Park, if he did move, and he could then be playing Reserve football or looking for a loan, whereas he'd most certainly be Swansea City's first choice left back. But wages could play a massive part in his decision to leave for a bigger club.
