Good news today that Steven Taylor’s father Alf, will have personal talks with Newcastle chairman Chris Mort in the next day day or two so sort out the Taylor contract dispute that has hit the headlines in the last day or two.
But if the dealings of Newcastle and particularly new chairman Chris Mort are anything to go by over the last couple of months, we fully expect this to be settled very quickly.
There’s no way the Newcastle management will allow Steven to leave Newcastle and the youngster doesn’t want to leave the club in any case.
Steven Taylor – Steven will sign new contract very quickly
We think chairman Mort is just too good a chairman and businessman to allow this to fester for long and as we suggested a couple of days ago the best way to handle this is to get it resolved quickly before the papers make even a bigger deal out of it. It’s just a pity it hit the papers in the first place – but that’s life.
Steven of course has just captained the England Under-21 team to a good 3-0 win over Montenegro and he talked to the Evening Chronicle yesterday about this:
â€œI had a lump in my throat when Stuart Pearce handed me the captainâ€™s armband, and I look on this is a massive honor, not just for myself, but for everyone connected with Newcastle United football club.”
â€œBut I was just as pleased for James Milner. He broke the record and he celebrated by having a hand in two of our three goals.â€
Very nice for Steven to share the honor with Newcastle United Football club – and of course he’s absolutely right in what he says and we’re proud of young Steven being captain of the England Under-21 team. Also nice for him to mention James Milner, one of our other tremendous young guns at the club.
So look to the depute to be resolved very quickly and we both hope and expect an agreement can be reached quickly.
