Steven Taylor, who was raised in the north east of England , ever since he was 2 weeks old, has today said how desperate he is to stay at the club under the great Kevin Keegan.
Steven Taylor – desperate to stay at Newcastle
Newcastle fan Taylor is just determined to be part of Kevin Keeganâ€™s plans for next season, but insists he is concerned by a lack of progress on a new deal.
Steven was a ball boy at Newcastle during Kevin’s last reign at the club, and the las has played really well for Kevin since he returned to the club in January.
Taylor told the Daily Star today.
“I’m desperate to stay, especially with Kevin Keegan now in charge,”
“But I hate the fact that I’ve got 13 months left on my contract.”
“Every day that’s passing, I’m wondering if it’s a day nearer to me leaving.â€“Believe me, that’s the last thing I want.”
“Everyone knows that I’m desperate to commit myself to this club but the deal has got to be right.â€
“All the players can’t wait for the new season because we believe the future is really bright at Newcastle.â€
“And it goes without saying that I want to be a big part of it.”
We think Steven has every right to be concerned there is no progress on his contract, since the club were talking about it last September, and at that time Chairman Chris Mort said he would step in and do the deal.
We’d really like to see the club move with greater speed, not only with Steven’s deal, but also with Michael Owen’s contract.
What’s going on?
