Swansea defender Neil Taylor plays down Arsenal speculation
Monday 09 January 2012
Swansea defender Neil Taylor has dismissed speculation linking him with a move to Arsenal during the transfer window.
The 22-year-old, who rejected a move to Newcastle during the summer, has been linked with the Gunners during recent weeks, and talk of a move could intensify when the Swans host Arsenal in the Barclays Premier League next Sunday.
However, the former Wrexham defender insists he is happy at the Liberty Stadium.
"I've had a few texts off people telling me, but I just get on with my football," Taylor told BBC Sport. "I'm enjoying my football here and I think it's going great.
"Every player should be getting watched at the moment because we're a young outfit and we're doing really well.
"We play some exciting stuff and I think a lot of people are talking about us which we want to just keep doing.
"We're hard working bunch and as long as we stay together and keep going, we'll be successful as a team."
