Neil Taylor will have some decisions to make this summer as his career looks set to head into a new chapter for next season.
The former Swansea City left-back has been released by Aston Villa and he’s now, obviously, free to find new employment for next year.
At 32, he still has plenty to offer the right club with good experience at Premier League, Championship and international level having earned over 40 caps for the Welsh national team and so, perhaps unsurprisingly, several second-tier clubs are linked with him.
QPR are one of those, according to The Sun, and, now Taylor is clearly not going to be staying around at Villa Park, we could well see whether Rangers are going to act on such interest.
As yet, there does not seem to have been any progress in the story, with Stoke City also reportedly interested in the player, but you could see where he fits in at Rangers.
In the second half of the season in 20/21, we saw Mark Warburton employ a 3-5-2 system with wing-backs.
Indeed, down the left-hand side that seemed to really unleash Lee Wallace with the Scotsman bombing up and down that flank, chalking up several assists in the process.
He’s been given an extension to his deal, too, but competition is everything if QPR want to be play-off challengers next year and it’s perhaps a good idea to line-up someone like Taylor who can provide exactly that, especially if Niko Hamalainen ends up leaving the club.
Whatever happens, we’ll probably soon get an answer over Taylor’s future now.
