Newcastle approach Swansea's Taylor

7th June 2011 - Alma Shera

Newcastle United have made a bid for Swansea left-back Neil Taylor, though the official fee is undisclosed.

The 22-year-old played 30 football games for the club in the Championship last season, helping them to win promotion to the top flight.

He was initially picked up from Wrexham at the beginning of last season, when he signed a three-year contract.

Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins said: "We have received a proposal from Newcastle regarding Neil, but it has not been accepted or rejected at this stage.

"We have received a number of bids for Neil's services and we will be talking it over with him."

However, Mr Jenkins asserted that selling players this summer is "the last thing" on the minds of the team's officials.

Swansea won promotion to the Premier League in a dramatic play-off final last month, where they beat Reading 4-2 in a game that included a hat-trick from Scott Sinclair.
