Newcastle United’s Steven Taylor wants to stay a Magpie for life

Have your say

STEVEN Taylor would love to spend the rest of his career at Newcastle United.

But the defender admits he can’t look past the next game against Everton at St James’s Park on Saturday.

“The main thing is we’re playing well, and we have put some good results together,” Taylor told SportMail.

“We had a hard-fought win against Birmingham and those are the teams we should be beating.

“We want to get a bit of a gap going. We’ve got some big games coming up here and this isn’t an easy place to come still.

“We have players coming back like Stephen Ireland and Shola Ameobi, so it’s a good bonus for us.”

The 25-year-old, having watched Ryan Giggs spend two decades in the Manchester United team, doesn’t see why he can’t spend the rest of his career at St James’s Park, having already committed himself until 2016.

“I have the best years of my career still in front of me,” Taylor went on.

“I want to play the next five and a half years here, and then hopefully the rest of my career after that.”

“It’s the best feeling ever,” added the former England Under-21 international. “The new gaffer came in, and everything was sorted.”
