Leeds fans react on Twitter to Charlie Taylor omission v Rotherham
By Harvey Byrne
Charlie Taylor has been left out of the Leeds 18-man match day squad to face Yorkshire rivals Rotherham on Monday – leaving fans on Twitter worried about the future of their star man.
The 23-year-old left-back has missed the last three matches for Garry Monk’s side, sparking rumours that he could be close to leaving Elland Road.
Taylor’s contract is set to run out at the end of the season and he has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League.
With no signs of a new contract coming, a number of supporters on social media are starting to worry about the whereabouts of one of their key players.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Taylor has played in 25 encounters for Garry Monk’s side in all competitions this season with a return of three assists.
He has been a key part of the Yorkshire giants’ back four this campaign, which has seen them sit as high as fifth place in England’s second tier.
However, it is unlikely that owner Massimo Cellino will let him run his contract down at the club, leaving the side in an difficult situation.
Taylor broke through the academy at Leeds, making his debut at the age of 17, but his future at Elland Road may now be coming to a premature end.
