Kinnear Will Decide Taylor Future!
Steven Taylor says he will NOT be leaving Newcastle United - despite Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp trying to take him to Loftus Road.
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.
