New twist in Toon vs Taylor contract stand-off
Published 23:00 26/08/10 By Simon Bird
Newcastle have offered Steven Taylor a new contract – less than 24 hours after putting him on the transfer list.
In a bizarre twist, Magpies officials have approached the defender, 24, with a new deal which is being considered, but will probably be rejected.
Taylor, whose contract runs out at the end of the season, was fuming with the Toon for leaking out news of negotiation problems.
He could now let his current deal expire and walk out on the club.
