Leeds United ace Charlie Taylor equals Sam Byram record

Leeds United 2

Charlie Taylor impressed for Leeds United against Bolton.

Leeds United defender Charlie Taylor displayed his attacking intent with an impressive display against Bolton.

Taylor created five goalscoring chances in the 2-1 win, rampaging forward from left-back and touching the ball 77 times - more than any other player on the pitch.

He is one of only four defenders in the Championship this season to make five or more key passes in a single game, matching a feat accomplished by Sam Byram.

Taylor is one of the many young talents to come through Leeds' academy, and has been playing regularly for the club since he replaced Stephen Warnock in the starting XI last January.

Last season he even played in midfield which helped him hone his attacking instincts, and it is no surprise the Yorkshire Evening Post claimed in Januart that both Crystal Palace and Stoke City were monitoring the defender's progress.

Just 22, Taylor is an outstanding prospect who Leeds need to tie down to an extended deal or risk losing him.
