Sources of the Yorkshire Evening Post have confirmed that West Bromwich Albion are very confident of securing a deal for Leeds United left back Charlie Taylor in the coming weeks despite the full back refusing to play in the last game of the season on Sunday.

Taylor has come in for some serious and justified criticism since he refused to play in the Wigan game and the majority of fans now want him out of the club as soon as possible, one of them being me. The full back will probably play at West Brom and be a decent signing given his ability but I would rather play a worse player that wants to play for Leeds United than someone who refuses to play for the football club I love. Taylor gets paid very good money to pull on the famous white shirt, something many of us idolise and the fact Taylor refused to wear it when he gets paid to is disgusting.

West Bromwich Albion and Tony Pulis are keen on the player and Leeds are expected to ask for around £4 million in compensation for the player. According to Radio Yorkshire the club are expected to discipline Taylor in the coming days. Garry Monk called Taylor “naïve” and said that he has been “badly advised all season”. He also added it was “unacceptable” behaviour, something we all agree on. Hopefully he leaves as sooner rather than later and we can move on.

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
