Pompey reject £1.2m Fulham bid for Taylor
Portsmouth have rejected Fulham's £1.2million bid for versatile midfielder Matt Taylor.
The London club had been linked with the 24-year-old left-sided player but it
is understood they are close to signing Chelsea full-back Wayne Bridge on loan
Subsequently they have not raised their bid for Taylor, who Pompey manager
Harry Redknapp is more than happy to keep hold of.
'I never wanted to sell him but there is a good player in Germany who I would
have liked to have signed on loan but that isn't going to happen now by the look
of it,' said Redknapp.
