Leeds United have reportedly rejected £7m bids from Crystal Palace, Middlesbrough and West Bromwich Albion for Charlie Taylor.

According to The Guardian, Leeds United have rejected three offers of £7million from Premier League trio Crystal Palace, Middlesbrough and West Bromwich Albion.

Taylor, 23, has come up through the ranks at Elland Road, and is the latest young star to emerge through Leeds' famed academy.

Taylor has been Leeds' first-choice left back ever since allowing Stephen Warnock to join Derby County in January 2015, and his performances over the last two years have earned him major plaudits.

Now, those display have attracted great interest, with The Guardian reporting that Premier League trio Crystal Palace, Middlesbrough and West Bromwich Albion have all offered £7million for Taylor – but Leeds have rejected the offers.

Taylor is out of contract at the end of the season, an some believed that Leeds would cash in this month rather than have his impending departure hanging over them for the rest of the season.

However, manager Garry Monk wants to keep Taylor at the club as Leeds chase a play-off place, and the Whites appear to be hoping that promotion to the Premier League will tempt Taylor into penning a new deal at the end of the season.

It's no great surprise that Palace have moved for Taylor, as left back Pape Souare's future is in doubt after suffering a major injury in a car crash earlier this season, and manager Sam Allardyce has a lack of other options at his disposal.

West Brom have been using right back Allan Nyom on the left this season with Brendan Galloway making little impact since joining on loan from Everton, whilst Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka may want more competition for George Friend at left back, having endured some injury problems of late.

All three have failed with moves for Taylor though, and with Leeds standing firm, it may take an astronomical offer for the Whites to even consider selling the young left back during this month's transfer window.
