Leeds United youngster Charlie Taylor has shed light on his plans as he enters the final year of his contract at Elland Road.

In an interview with BBC Radio Leeds this week, the talented 22 year-old spoke about how he’d “like to stay at Leeds and I want us to have a a real good push and challenge for promotion next year.”

This news, which will no doubt delight Whites fans, was followed up by what he believes the club need to do to challenge for promotion:

“I think with a couple more signings, a few more things done behind the scenes, there’s no reason why that’s not too much to ask for.”

“Hopefully i’ll still be here and (Lewis) Cooky and (Alex) Mowatt [will be here as well].”

Leeds boss Steve Evans recently hailed Taylor as one of the best players at the club and said that the Whites were “blessed” to have the player with them.

Commending his performances this season as “outstanding”, the left-back has contributed a goal and four assists during the campaign.

Leeds fans will no doubt be worried that a Sam Byram-esque situation could be repeating itself, but Taylor seems happy to stay if the club take steps to move forward.
