Redknapp – who signed free agent Danny Simpson after his Newcastle contract expired earlier this month – is rebuilding the team which was relegated from the Premier League last season.
But, despite the fact United manager Alan Pardew is determined to hold on to the influential defender . the final word lies with Newcastle Director of Football, Joe Kinnear!
And the 27-year-old – who is under contract until 2016 – isn’t looking towards the exit door at St James’s Park, despite the club’s disappointing domestic campaign last term.
Taylor: “Every player at this club wants to do well.
“I’m just hoping next season we can surprise a few people, and answer the questions that have been asked of us as a group.
“We want to jump up that league and answer our critics.”
Taylor was linked with a move to QPR as part of a swap deal for striker Loic Remy over the weekend.
However, Remy – who snubbed a move to St James’s Park in January – isn’t understood to be among Pardew's main striking targets . but that depends on Kinnear (who is currently on holiday).
Kinnear has already snubbed everyone of Pardew's transfer targets, including Brazilian Douglas - who was days away from signing for Newcastle.
