Good news this morning that Steven Taylor will not be asking for a transfer from Newcastle United.
Steven Taylor – will not ask for a transfer
The defender is interesting Everton and because he appeared emotional as he left the field at the end of Saturday’s 3-0 win over Reading, there was news yesterday that he may be leaving Newcastle.
But Steven is willing to wait on developments off the field, with Tyneside businessman Barry Moat still in the running to take over the stricken club, and he is said to be meeting with Barclays Bank today.
And of course if he is successful Alan Shearer will become manager and Steven will not want to go anywhere.
Everton are reported to have asked about Taylor last week, with David Moyes ready to bid decent money for the player should he lose Joleon Lescott to Manchester City.
But if Steven is put up for sale watch for other big clubs to come in and try to get the very promising 23 year-old.
Caretaker boss Chris Hughton has today played down the rumors of Steven wanting to leave, as he told the Evening Chronicle today:
“If there’s interest (in Taylor), then I’m certainly not aware of it.”
If Mike Ashley remains in place at Newcastle, it wouldn’t surprise us if Steven moves from Newcastle before the end of the month, because he thinks the only solution it to bring Alan Shearer back as manager.
So do we.
