It looks like Steven Taylor is not as close to the exit door at Newcastle, as we were led to believe by reports in the Sunday newspapers.
Steven Taylor – going nowhere says Hughton
Some observers claimed that Taylor’s odd reaction at the final whistle of Saturday’s great victory over Reading, looked like a farewell sign to the Newcastle supporters.
But Hughton says that is not the case, and says that he has heard nothing at all from the Newcastle Board to suggest Steven is a player Newcastle want to unload.
Chris said today:
“He is very much still Newcastle’s player and he is desperate to get on with things and do well for the team,”
“As far as I know, he is still at the club at the moment. Whether anything has happened that I don’t know about is a different matter but I’m pretty sure he’ll be playing on Wednesday.”
“Him asking to leave or leaving is not something that I’m aware of. I haven’t been told by anyone that there has been a bid and I’m sure that I would be informed by someone if anything like that had happened.”
“Obviously, he’s a good player and Steven has been playing well. He is obviously someone who is very important to the team.”
There are some players you want to keep, not only because they are good players, but they define the Tyneside club.
And because Steven is local, supported Newcatsle all his life and let’s face it, is like the rest of us and just Newcastle daft, he’s just the type of player who can propel us back to the Premier League at our first attempt.
It will be a sad day indeed, if Steven leaves the Newcastle club before the end of this transfer window.
Howay The Lads!!
