Taylor 'Very Close' To Signing New Contract

Taylor 'Very Close' To Signing New Contract

Swansea City left back Neil Taylor says he was very close to signing a new contract before he suffered a broken ankle.

The club are keen to get Michel Vorm, Ashley Williams and Neil Taylor secured to long-term deals. While Williams says he is no rush to extend his current 2-year deal, Taylor showed his appreciation for their desire to improve his current contract, despite the fact that he won't play another game this season.

'We've been talking about a new contract for a few months now, and we were very close before the injury happened,'

'But in fairness to the club they have already said they will honour the new deal despite the fact that I won't play again this season.

'The way they have handled it speaks volumes about the club and the board.'


Taylor also added that he aims to come back stronger next season, and is completely confident that the Swans will still be a Premier League club next year:

'I want to come back fitter and stronger next season,'

'And I'm happy in the knowledge that if I get my rehab right then I'm confident Swansea City will still be in the Premier League.

'There is a very good feeling within the camp at the moment. Without getting carried away, everyone is riding high on confidence after a great start.

'I believe we've not only got a great chance of staying up, but we'll get stronger as the season progresses.'


With Neil Taylor out for the rest of the season, youngster Ben Davies and new signing Dwight Tiendalli compete for the vacant left back spot.
