'Inexcusable', 'Another Berahino' - West Brom fans react to speculation deal close for Leeds player

By Harry Sykes

West Brom are reportedly set to sign defender Charlie Taylor from Leeds United –  and fans of the Premier League club on Twitter are worried about his attitude.

The Sun claim the Premier League club are close to winning the race for the left-back, 23, ahead of top-flight giants Liverpool.

It is said that West Brom are likely to pay a compensation fee of around £4million for Taylor even though he is out of contract at Elland Road next month.

The defender joined the Leeds academy at the age of nine and the Championship club are entitled to development costs for the player under Fifa guidelines.

Baggies manager Tony Pulis went public last week with his interest in signing Taylor although he insisted it would be a “difficult” deal due to the likelihood that the fee would be decided by a tribunal.

West Brom fans are concerned that Taylor could have an attitude problem after Leeds manager Garry Monk revealed that the club’s 2015-16 player of the year had refused to play in their final match of the season on Sunday, a 1-1 Championship draw against Wigan at the DW Stadium.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Pulius admitted last Friday West Brom are in the market for a permanent left-back after using stop-gap options in the position for much of the season.

As a natural left-footer who has played in that position for over 100 Leeds games, as well as out on loan at five clubs, Taylor’s experience, price and potential to improve makes him an attractive option for Premier League clubs.

Liverpool have also been strongly linked with signing the defender as they look to land a new left-back in the forthcoming transfer window after deploying James Milner in that position all season.

In other Leeds United transfer news, it can be exclusively revealed that the club registered a new signing last month.
