Five areas Charlie Taylor has impressed since Stephen Warnock left Leeds United

Leeds United youngster Charlie Taylor has been solid in several areas since Stephen Warnock left for Derby.

Leeds United defender Charlie Taylor has seen his stock soar since Stephen Warnock left the club for Derby County in the middle of the January transfer window.

Leeds boss Neil Redfearn appears to be content with his young full-back and he’s made a solid start to life in the club’s back four.

Redfearn will stress the need for Taylor to improve further and there is an area of his game, which could improve based on his stats since Warnock was confirmed as a Derby player on January 15.

That area is his passing accuracy, which will be lower than he’d like at 67%.

His positional play, the way he tackles and the way he reads the game are his biggest strengths but Redfearn will more than likely want that passing accuracy to get over the 70% mark.

He’s a superb talent and one of the best ways for younger players to continuously improve is to try and get even better in various aspects of his performances.

If Redfearn can help Taylor get into double figures quickly for accurate crosses, blocked crosses and tackles won while improving his passing percentage, he’ll only further cement his long term position on the left hand side of the back four.
