Premier League trio target 22-year-old Leeds star amid contract stalemate - report
By Tom Blackburn
Leeds left-back Charlie Taylor has attracted interest from West Brom, Crystal Palace and Stoke, according to a report.
Taylor has been the centre of transfer speculation after an impressive season marshalling the left side of Leeds’ defence and as he enters the final year of his contract with the club.
Yorkshire Evening Post reporter Phil Hay claimed on his Twitter account on Wednesday that there is still continued talk about interest in the 22-year-old from Premier League clubs.

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.
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 last week Teamtalk claimed this week that the youngster had held talks with two Premier League clubs and had his heart set on a transfer.
Despite those rumours, Leeds claim no official offers have been made for the former England under-19.
