Bristol Rovers manager denies star striker will be sold in January



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?
