Kevin Keegan has said that Steven Taylor is very much in his plans for the future of Newcastle United, but he currently has more important problems to handle than getting a new contract to Steven.
Steven Taylor – told to be a little patient on his contract by Newcastle’s boss
The Newcastle manager told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle today:
â€œI think there are things that are important to the player and the club, but I donâ€™t think at the moment they are the things that we should be most concerned about.â€â€œWe want to make sure we stay in this division, which weâ€™ve got to. Then, weâ€™ll look at all those things.â€
â€œThere are other players as well as Steven whose contracts need looking at. Heâ€™s still got another year after this, so weâ€™ve got time to talk.â€
â€œI think Iâ€™m going to see his dad this week.â€
Good words from Kevin and we know Taylor is delighted with the way the manager has treated him since he came back to the club in January.
Taylor is being represented by his father Alf, and they have some right to be a little upset at the contract situation. As we pointed out yesterday both James Milner and Charles Nâ€™Zogbia were offered improved contracts this season, which they both signed last September.
But we’re sure Steven and Alf, his father, understand the situation right now, and Steven can play a massive role ion keeping the club in the Premier League next season. After all is done and dusted and we survive this season, we’re sure a good contract offer will be made to Taylor.
But it’s all hands to the pump to save us from relegation this season, and everybody knows that’s our number one – and only priority right now.
