Leeds have insisted via the Yorkshire Evening Post they have received no bids for Charlie Taylor despite reports saying he was on the verge of a move to the Premier League.

The left-back was voted Leeds’ Player of the Year this season after he made 43 appearances in all competitions and supplied seven assists from his defensive position.

Taylor, along with fellow academy star Lewis Cook, has been continually linked with a move away from Elland Park and Teamtalk claimed this week that the youngster had held talks with two Premier League clubs and had his heart set on a transfer.

However, the Yorkshire Post now claim the reports are false and that Leeds have not received any bids for their star youngster or authorised him to hold talks with other clubs.

The rumoured discussions were claimed to have taken place with top flight clubs Liverpool and Stoke, but Leeds have now reportedly made it clear that speculation is untrue.

Leeds’ efforts to tie Taylor down to a fresh deal have so far been resisted and it was believed the Whites were ready to sell the 22-year-old this summer rather than allow him to run down the final year of his contract and leave on a free next June.

In other Leeds news, the Whites could be losing a left-back to the topflight, but they are confident they can secure this Premier League striker.
