Taylor 'Very Close' To Signing New Swansea Deal

Taylor 'Very Close' To Signing New Swansea Deal

Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed that they are 'very very close' to securing Neil Taylor to a new 4-year contract.

There has been a lot of reports and speculation surrounding Taylor's future, as Newcastle United have shown a keen interest to sign the 22 year-old.

The Magpies believe they have triggered a clause in his contract that allows him to join a club if they offer the desired amount - in this case £1m. However, the Swans are challenging these claims, and believes it only gives them the right to talk to the player, but not buy him.

With this current dispute, it's been reported today that a Premier League arbitration panel will resolve the issue, but Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins is confident that matters can resolved between themselves.

'The main thing is that we're hoping to get everything resolved if not by this week, early next week.

'We'll conclude things to our satisfaction then.

'I don't see that [a tribunal hearing] happening. I think, either way, things will be concluded between us and Neil and we'll deal with it and move forward.

'I'm always confident that we can get out of the situation what we want and we'll make sure we do that for the best interests of our club.

'Neil is fine, he's a young lad and perhaps all this has been blown out of all proportion and we've got to make sure we protect him and he's looked after and he's ready for the new season.'


Manager Brendan Rodgers talked about a new contract for Neil Taylor:

'We are very, very close to a new deal,'

'A lot of suff has been written and I feel sorry for Neil. This is the first chance I've had to speak about it

'I understand a young player having his head turned by a club the size of Newcastle but I've had good face-to-face conversations with him in the last week and he knows that this club is a fantastic place for a player to come and develop.'
