Newcastle star set for January move

Newcastle outcast Steven Taylor looks set to be sold in January, with QPR boss Harry Redknapp keen to bring the defender to Loftus Road, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Hoops boss is keen to sign the defender on loan for the second half of the season, with a view to making the deal permanent in the summer.

Redknapp believes the signing of the defender would go a long way to helping his sides promotion push. His side currently sit top of the Championship, three points clear of third placed Leicester City who sit just outside the automatic promotion places.

27-year-old Taylor has been fit for over a month, but has struggled to get back into Alan Pardew’s first team plans at St James’s Park.

Taylor started the season in the first team, but was sent off for an elbow during his sides opening day defeat to Manchester City.

Injury has since followed the suspension, and the impressive form of Fabio Coloccini, and Mike Williamson means Taylor is yet to win back his first team place.

Taylor’s contract at St James’s Park is also running out, and there has been no sign of a new deal as of yet.

Redknapp attempted to sign Taylor in the summer as part of the deal that saw Loic Remy move in the opposite direction.

Although the deal proved unsuccessful, Redknapp is confident a January move is on the cards.
