The experienced defender was released by Newcastle United last Friday after making more than 250 appearances for the Tyneside club over the past decade.
A host of clubs have since been linked with his services, including Old Firm duo Rangers and Celtic who were both accredited with a strong interest via a report in the Daily Express.
A further report by STV suggests the ex-Newcastle man is to hold talks with the Gers over a potential move to Ibrox this coming week, yet prior to the talks taking place, his heart seemingly lies on furthering his career south of the border.
Taylor, 30, came through the Newcastle academy and was at one stage tipped for international recognition following a string of fine performances at St. James’ Park.
However, injuries soon started to come more frequently and over the past three years he managed just 27 Premier League appearances, with nine of those coming as starts this past season.
Scottish Premiership duo Celtic and Rangers both have the pull to attract a player of Taylor’s qualities, though for now it appears the defender still feels he can make a difference in England.
