Fulham wait on Swansea response to Taylor bid

Fulham are waiting to see how Swansea respond after making an offer for left-back Neil Taylor, according to Sky Sports.

The Wales International suffered a broken ankle against Sunderland in September 2012 and has since found in difficult to break back into the first-team picture.

The former Wrexham man made his return from seven months out with a broken ankle in a defeat against Chelsea in April at the end of last season.

So far this season, the 23-year-old has had to settle for playing back-up to Ben Davies, only making nine appearances for the Welsh club.

The Swans previously turned down a £1m bid for Taylor from Newcastle in 2011 before he went on to sign a three-and-a-half year contract extension in December 2012.

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup previously ruled out the sale of the defender as it would leave them short at the back and has so far remained quiet on the bid tabled by the London side.

Taylor was a key player before the injury but his lack of first team football could lead to a move elsewhere. His last playing action came in the FA Cup third-round victory over Manchester United.
