Royals line up record bid for Pompey star !!!

Reading boss Steve Coppell has today been linked with a Portsmouth left sided player Matt Taylor. Taylor has been out of favour at Fratton Park this season and is apparently interested in a move away from the club. It is likely that Reading will have to cough up a club record £5 million bid for the player.

Taylor had a terrific season last season but for some reason or another he finds him self in the cold at Pompey. Pompey have had a terrific start to the season and the defence has been instrumental in their start, so it is likely that Taylor will have to leave the club to start getting first team football again.

I think Taylor would be a terrific signing for the Royals because he is only 25 years old and I feel he has a big future, but not at Portsmouth. Reading, I feel are in need of a left sided player and Taylor provides that option, playing in the defence or midfield. I really hope Taylor leaves Pompey in January because he's too good a player to be sitting on the bench every week.
