As a “local lad who just wants to play for his local team” Steven Taylor`s dad has admitted he`s knocked back a new five year deal that was put to him recently. Obviously conscious of the fact players like Emre and Duff are picking up monster wages for keeping the physios in work, the centre half has knocked back the new deal citing the wages being picked up by the likes of Jimmy Milner and new signing Abdoullaye Faye.

With two years to go on his existing deal and the likes of Mourinho and Benitez having been named as admirers of the lad in the press are the club trying to force him out? Many fans are questioning just where he`s going to fit in come next month, with the likes of Enrique, Capaca, Faye and Beye to all come into the first team picture proper.
