Bristol Rovers manager Darrell Clarke says star striker Matty Taylor will not be sold in the January window amid transfer speculation linking the 26-year-old with a number of clubs from League One and the Championship, reports the Bristol Post.
Taylor has been linked with a move away from the Memorial Stadium for some time now, but played down any talks of a move away last summer by signing a new two-year contract at the Gas. Although the forward has continued to impress this season after his 28 goals last campaign with eighteen this term alone so far.
After Rovers’ 2-0 home victory against AFC Wimbledon on Saturday, Clarke was resolute on the idea that his best player will not be leaving the club over the next four weeks: “Matty is not going anywhere. We’d have to be talking a silly money offer of something like £10 million. Even then I don’t think I’d consider it.”
Matty Taylor has most recently been talked of a transfer to Championship strugglers Wigan Athletic.
Since the beginning of 2016, the striker has made 44 league appearances for Bristol Rovers and scored 29 goals during those matches – which includes two hat-tricks.
Gasheads, do you think the Bristol Rovers board will stand-by Darrell Clarke’s attempt to keep Taylor? How much would it take to allow him to leave?
