Report: Swansea to offer Neil Taylor new contract, with Aston Villa and West Brom interested

Swansea Liberty Stadium

West Bromwich Albion and Aston Villa are expected to make moves for Swansea City defender Neil Taylor.

Swansea City will offer Neil Taylor a new deal to fend off interest from West Bromwich Albion and Aston Villa, according to the Daily Mail.

Tony Pulis and Tim Sherwood reportedly both want to add Taylor to their squads, as they look to make a number of new signings over the summer, but Swansea are desperate to keep him.

Garry Monk feels that Taylor is a key part of the Swans' squad and, as a result, he will be offered an improved contract to persuade him to stay.

The 26-year-old is currently under contract until 2016 and Swansea don't want to risk leaving his deal to run down to its final year.

If Taylor does sign on for Swansea he will be staying at a good club, as Monk's side have been one of the Premier League's most impressive teams this season.

The Welsh outfit beat Arsenal last night and they are now just two points behind sixth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

They are performing significantly above expectations and if they can continue to progress then a European push could be on the cards next term.
