It's Time For Taylor To Move On!

Greenwich-born Taylor has failed to impress this season, and he could be one of the high-profile casualties to move on.

Centre-back Taylor, who was heavily linked with a loan move to Queens Park Rangers during the January transfer window, needs a new club because the fans have lost faith in him ... and he seems to have lost faith in them, too.

He pulled his Twitter account following strong comments after the Chelsea 3-0 defeat, and there seems 'no way back'.

Taylor and his agent Willie McKay made it clear before the New Year window the player wanted more first-team football when he was out of the team.

But his performances since returning to the side have not always justified those calls.

He is no Fabricio Coloccini, and that has shown in recent weeks.

Taylor or Mike Williamson will be demoted to the bench to make way for the returning captain this weekend, and Taylor is odds-on favourite.

The question is - who would want him?

The days of interest from the big clubs - Liverpool and Arsenal - are long gone.

He impressed for the England Under-21s years ago, but he has failed to move up the form ladder.

Stoke City, West Ham United and Hull City were all understood to have been monitoring the defender before the January transfer window, but that just seems to be media speculation.

West Ham were suffering with injuries, having the entire back-line out, so perhaps he was seen as a short-term loan deal - although no offer was made.
