“The club has given me so much and I want to thank them. So many coaches across the Academy have helped me become the player I am today and now Pep and his staff are helping me to improve.

“The confidence Pep has placed in me makes me feel like anything is possible, and the work he and his staff do on the training field is making me a better defender.

“I am happy with my progress. I am at the right place to keep improving and developing.


“I’m just so glad this contract is all sorted because it now means I can concentrate on improving further and achieving my goals."

Widely seen as one of the most promising Academy players we have produced in recent years, Taylor is now regularly involved in the first-team set-up.

Everyone at City would like to send their congratulations to Taylor on signing his new deal and we wish him all the best for the coming years.
