Departing Ryan Taylor sends heartfelt message to Newcastle United fans on Twitter

Ryan Taylor will leave Premier League outfit Newcastle United at the end of the month.

Departing Newcastle United defender Ryan Taylor has taken to social networking site Twitter to send an emotional message to the fans.

The 30-year-old, who can play as a defender as well as a midfielder, will leave Newcastle at the end of the month after being told that he will not be offered a new contract.

Taylor, who moved to the Magpies from Wigan Athletic in 2009, has now taken to Twitter to send a heartfelt farewell message to the supporters.

Newcastle narrowly avoided relegated from the Premier League in the recently concluded 2014-15 season.

Heading into the final day of the campaign, the Magpies were in danger of going down to the Championship.

However, a 2-0 win against West Ham United at St. James’ Park secured their survival in the English top flight.

Newcastle will now hope to fare better in the 2015-16 campaign and probably push for a top-10 finish in the Premier League.
