Taylor Interest Stalls

Taylor Interest Stalls

West Bromwich Albion head coach Tony Pulis has said our interest in Leeds United's Charlie Taylor will come to an end unless both clubs can agree a fee.

The 23 year old is out of contract this summer but having been with the Elland Road outfit since nine years of age, and being under 24 if a fee can't be agreed for a transfer then Leeds are owed a tribunal to set a fee relating to his development as a player.

Reports suggest we have offered £3.5million for the player who refused to play in their final league game of the season and is the subject of disciplinary action ont he back of that and Pulis told the BBC.

'A tribunal could put an extraordinary amount of money on it and you're stuck with it. It's a risk that, at this moment, is not worth taking.'

Taylor was the clubs' Player of the Season back in 2915/16 and he has plenty of suitors, but with Liverpool being ordered to pay Burnley £6.5million rising to £8million for Danny Ings when they went to a tribunal, Pulis said it wasn't a risk we were willing to take on the left back.

'We wanted to find out what the price was to see if we'd be interested. If it's going to go to tribunal, we don't know what the price is and I think that takes us out of the game.'
