Town Linked With Posh Midfielder Taylor
Friday, 13th May 2022 12:01

Town are reported to be showing interest in Peterborough United midfielder Jack Taylor.

According to the EADT, the Blues are keen on the 23-year-old, who has been a key man in the Posh midfield in recent seasons.

Town will be looking to add to their senior central midfield options over the summer with Tom Carroll having been released.

Loanee Tyreeq Bakinson spent the second half of the campaign at Portman Road but there is as yet no confirmation that Town will look to bring the Bristol City man back to Suffolk on a permanent basis.

Idris El Mizouni was on the fringes of the side and could be one to move on this summer with Wycombe Wanderers having considered a loan move in January.

Cameron Humphreys will hope to break into the picture on a more regular basis during 2022/23 having made his first senior appearances last season.

Skipper Sam Morsy and Lee Evans were manager Kieran McKenna’s first choice pairing with the latter having suffered a knock towards the end of the season.

Versatile midfielder Taylor joined Posh for an initial £500,000 from Barnet in January 2020 with the fee likely to have increased towards £1 million with top-ups.

Hammersmith-born Taylor has since made 80 starts and six sub appearances for Posh, scoring 12 times.

Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony revealed in the summer of 2020 that his club had received a bid for Taylor of £2 million from an unnamed club and Posh will be looking for a big fee for the one-time Chelsea academy youngster, whose contract is believed to run to the summer of 2024.

Taylor, who spent time on loan at Hampton and Richmond while with the Bees, qualifies for the Republic of Ireland via his grandfather and has been capped at U21 level. He received his first senior call in November 2020 but is yet to make an appearance at full international level.

TWTD revealed last month that Peterborough, who were recently relegated back to League One after a single season in the Championship, are among the clubs showing interest in wantaway Blues striker Tyreece Simpson, so it’s possible there could be scope for cash-plus-player deal should Town make an approach for Taylor.

Luton Town and Barnsley are also keen on Simpson, who is out of contract this summer but with the Blues set to trigger a one-year option in his deal in order to achieve a more significant fee for the 20-year-old.

I had not heard of him before, but he sounds expensive.

Agreed MickMillsTash, the last bloke we bought from Posh called Taylor didn't exactly work out well.

The first of about 40 links over the summer, all good fun though 👍

I have heard and seen him before.
Solid enough player.
What I like is if the likes of him and Hurst are our targets we are aiming for good fairly young players.
I enjoy the crazy rumour mill so keep them coming.

From the highlights on youtube, get him in. This is the type of player at a good age that can take us forward an make us stronger. He will have a far better future playing infront of bigger crowds than if he stays at Posh.

When I see him shaking hands with Mark A, ill believe it.......

Posh seem to be able to stitch us up every time we do business. Hopefully Ashton has got their number, should a deal be required.

I’ve never admitted this but my wife is a posh fan of some 25 years. She watched them on Posh TV all season. She’s not happy that he’s leaving but is resigned to it; rates him massively.

He was highly rated whilst at Barnet (His brother, Harry, is still there, and is also well thought of, but Jack was always the better player).
