There is a report in the News Of The World today that Bolton manager Owen Coyle wants Newcastle’s Ryan Taylor.
Ryan Taylor – Bolton interested in Newcastle utility man
The new Bolton manager has reportedly been impressed with the Newcastle utility player, who can play on either wing or in either full-back position.
The report suggests that Bolton would be willing to pay Newcastle £2M to secure the Liverpudlian’s services.
Ryan is a good player and has appeared 35 times this season for Newcastle, with 23 starts and 4 goals, and he is a very useful man to have in the squad.
Before joining Newcastle 15 months ago, he played at Tranmere Rovers from 2002-2005 and then for Wigan Athletic, but we cannot see Chris Hughton wanting to lose such a flexible player, before a critical season for the Newcastle United club.
We believe the Newcastle manager will want to keep his current squad and add four quality players to it – to be able to compete successfully in the Premiership next season.
Nicky Butt and French winger Fabrice Pancrate are the only two senior players we expect to see leaving Newcastle this summer – and we don’t expect top see Ryan Taylor leaving any time soon.
