Newcastle United center-half Steven Taylor could finally leave the club and swap the northeast for the northwest if the Magpies management does not show signs of ambition with quality additions to the squad. According to the Daily Express, Taylor is keen to seal a move to Liverpool as he grows increasingly frustrated with the inactivity at St. James’ Park.
Controversial owner Mike Ashley has not signalled an intent to strengthen a squad that had to fight for a return to the Premier League by competing in the Coca Cola League Championship last season. And although the Magpies looked impressive with their comfortable first-place finish in the second tier of English football, Taylor knows too well that the Premier League is a totally different ball game.
Hence, to fulfill his ambitions of joining a team that is building for future success, Taylor has a great opportunity to join Roy Hodgson’s exciting revolution at Merseyside. Given that a £6 million bid can lure him away from Newcastle, Hodgson will be keeping his fingers crossed for negotiations to begin over this bargain deal.
According to some insiders, though, Taylor is only expressing his frustration to urge the Magpies to respond to the demands of a highly deserving Toon army by showing ambition in rebuilding the team. For the sake of the extremely hard-working former England Under-21 international, one can only hope that Taylor’s wishes are granted by the time the new season is about to begin.
