Portsmouth boss denies Sunderland approach for Taylor
The 25-year-old midfielder's frustration fuelled reports that he is being lined up for a move to Sunderland, but Redknapp has played down the speculation.
"I have not heard a thing from (Sunderland manager) Roy Keane about Matt Taylor. I spoke to Roy only last Friday," Redknapp told The News.
"He rang up to ask me about Newcastle before they played them. Matt Taylor was never, ever discussed.
"He has not played a lot lately but Niko Kranjcar has been playing well. He's not the only one who has been missing out."
