Taylor, now thirty-one years of age, is being linked with a move to St James Park as he seeks to gain regular football.
However, talkSPORT are better than most at spreading rumours, but this one could carry an element of truth in the fact that Joe Kinnear is now calling the shots!
Wingers build their careers on pace, and sadly West Ham boss Big Sam knows Mr Taylor lost his some time ago.
Mike Ashley has never been keen one for bring in "older players", simply because they don't have a sell-on value.
But bringing in an over-aged WINGER is something only Kinnear would suggest.
What does Alan Pardew think?
We I don't think he is in the picture!
Since the day he signed for the club Pardew has never been quiet for more than three days, but he has gone 21 days ... a full THREE WEEKS without saying a word.
Interesting, don't you think?
