Bookmakers BETVICTOR have slashed the odds on Leeds United full-back Charlie Taylor joining Premier League side West Bromwich Albion, making them odds on favourites to win the race for his signature at 2/5.

Taylor is one of Leeds' brightest young talents, and the the 22-year-old has been at the club since 2011.

He is incredibly versatile and although his primary position is left-back, he can also play in a more advanced role as a left winger.

With Chris Brunt currently unavailable due to injury, the Baggies' need for cover at left-back is becoming increasingly more urgent. They have already put two bids in for Leicester City's Jeffrey Schlupp (The Telegraph), but with the Foxes seemingly uninterested in doing business, it may seem that Taylor turns out to be the more attainable option.

BETVICTOR make Middlesbrough as second favourites for Taylor's signature, pricing him at 3/1 whilst Burnley and Newcastle complete the top-four favourites and are priced at 6/1 and 8/1 respectively.

Wherever Taylor eventually ends up, he will be a fantastic addition to their squad, and at such a young age, he is capable of developing into an even better player than he is already.
