Charlie Taylor paints clear picture over his Leeds United future

Leeds United youngster Charlie Taylor says he's happy playing his football at the club.

Leeds United youngster Charlie Taylor painted a very clear picture over his future to BBC Radio Leeds.

Taylor suggested that he’s not planning to be playing anywhere other than Elland Road next season, suggesting that Leeds can seriously challenge for promotion into the Premier League over 2015/2016.

“I only signed a new three-year deal last summer so I’ve got another two years to run and I’m happy playing for Leeds and I’m just looking forward to next season really – I don’t see why we can’t be a big challenger for next season with a few good signings,” said Taylor.

Taylor is one example of several younger players to have come out of the Leeds youth system to provide manager Neil Redfearn with a solid option in his squad.

He ticks all of the right boxes for any team looking to invest in a versatile left sided player this summer, but his loyalty and clear thinking in relation to Leeds is admirable.

It would be easy for a younger player at Leeds to jump ship considering all of the uncertainty, but he’s certainly not someone who falls into that bracket.

He’s proven that he can play at left-back this season, but also further forward and he’ll have a challenge over the summer.

That challenge will come in the form of Aidy White and Nicky Ajose, who will be options down the left for Redfearn, an area where the boss is going to be spoilt for choice and where no one can rest on their laurels.
