Leeds have rejected a transfer request from left-back Charlie Taylor – and there have been mixed reactions from the club’s fans.
Taylor is the club’s current Player of the Year and he admitted he will not extend his current contract, which expires next summer.
However, on Tuesday evening the official Leeds website released a statement to say that a transfer request from their star player had been rejected and that he would not leave the club in the current window.
Some Leeds fans have reacted negatively to the news, believing that Cellino is cutting off his nose to spite his face, while others believe that the club’s strong stance on not allowing another key player to leave this summer would be more beneficial to the club than the money received.
Here are a selection of the fans views on Taylor’s rejected request:
Taylor has firmly established himself as Leeds’ first-choice left-back and made 42 appearances for the Whites last season, chipping in with seven assists.
It remains to be seen whether Monk will opt to use Taylor against QPR in the team’s Championship curtain-raiser on Sunday.
In other Leeds team news, Kemar Roofe has revealed that he has no fixed ideas about his best position.
