There were some stories out earlier today, that Neil Taylor may have rejected a contract at Newcastle.
Neil Taylor – Newcastle offered him a 5 year deal
And the news going around, was that Everton may have moved in for the player and beaten Newcatsle to the 22 year old Welsh International.
Neil is now back in Swansea, but the Evening Chronicle is reporting this afternoon, that the inside information from the club is that the Newcastle deal is in fact still very close to completion.
It seems the deal is a long one – a five year deal – and inside sources at Newcastle are saying there is nothing untoward in the delay, and they still expect Neil to become a Newcastle United player.
The 22 year-old, who made massive improvements in his play last season at Swansea last season, will then have to fight it out for a position at left-back or on the left side of midfield in the Magpies’ first team next season.
That’s good news – and of the two stories doing the rounds today on Taylor – we hope this one is true.
