Taylor not rushing into Newcastle contract talks

Steven Taylor isn't rushing into new contract talks with Newcastle United.

The Sunday Sun says rather than being on the verge of agreeing to sign a new contract at St James' Park, Taylor is waiting for confirmation of United's ambitions before committing himself to a long-term deal.

Magpies' manager Chris Hughton said this week that a contract offer for Taylor, currently tied to Newcastle only until next summer, was imminent and that discussions with the player had begun.

But Taylor, who is working on his fitness while on holiday in Los Angeles, has held no meaningful talks with the club as yet.

"If the ambition of the club is right, he wants to stay," one of Taylor's confidants said last night.
