Newcastle United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the impending exit of Steven Taylor.

Taylor will leave Newcastle at the end of the month when his current contract with the Magpies runs out, the club have announced on their official website.

The 30-year-old defender joined the Magpies back in 1995 and made his first-team debut in 2003.

The Englishman played to the best of his ability at St. James’ Park, and he is now set to leave Newcastle, who got relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 2015-16 campaign and will play in the Championship next season.

Taylor was never a great defender, but he tried his best and was fully committed whenever he took to the pitch.
