According to the Daily Record, City are interested in signing 19-year-old Newcastle United striker Dan Taylor. The Newcastle born player is set to be released from the St James’ Park Academy. Taylor had a spell on loan at non-league outfit Ashington earlier last season, where he made a positive impact, and he has also bagged 12 goals for Newcastle’s reserve team.
Before that, he had he had a trial at Valley Parade in February and he played in a behind closed doors friendly against Chesterfield. Parkinson said of him at the time: “He’s a young striker who we had watched last week. I was told that he is definitely worth looking at and has been unlucky not to be offered a new deal from them.” There’s probably no truth in the story as he’s currently have a trial at Scottish Premier League side St. Mirren.
