Taylor deal on the cards


Matt Taylor is on track to be offered a new deal in the summer after seriously impressing since being drafted back into the team.

Taylor’s Upton Park days looked to be numbered when he failed to break into the League team permanently until December but since then he has shown outstanding form.

He’s out of contract in June and was thought to be one of those who would be on his way from the club but insiders have told Claretandhugh a new deal is now on the cards

His hunger and energy had Sam Allardyce single him out for special praise before the weekend defeat at Everton and it’s now likely the  Oxford-born 32 year old will be offered another year minimum!

However, Joe Cole will definitely be on his way and we have learned that Fulham are interested along with Queens Park Rangers where Harry Redknapp is keen to be reunited with the winger.
