Welsh defender Neil Taylor has admitted he would welcome a move away from Swansea City, according to his agent.

Taylor has been out injured for just over a year with a broken ankle and has failed to break back into the Swansea first team since his returned. Young star Ben Davies has now cemented his place in the left back spot and Michael Laudrup seems to favour him.

Taylor's agent Jamie Moralee wants the Welshman to play more games and spoke of the defenders frustration, reports Wales Online.

Moralee said: “Neil wants to play football and it doesn’t look like he is going to do that under the current manager at Swansea.

“This is not about wanting to leave Swansea City, it’s about wanting to play some games.

“He has been out for 13 or 14 months with injury and the last thing he wants after getting back to fitness is not to play.

“But it seems pretty clear that Michael Laudrup doesn’t fancy Neil because even after he played in a fantastic win at Manchester United, he didn’t play in the next game."

Taylor has only played 11 times this season with just four of these being in the Premier League.

The Welshman had an impressive run in the side before his injury, and in the 2011-12 season made 36 appearances in the Premier League.

Fulham have been linked with the defender during this transfer window and have reportedly bid for Taylor but Moralee is waiting for Swansea to respond.

Moralee said: “I believe a bid has gone in from Fulham but I don’t think anybody has heard anything from Swansea in terms of a response.

“I am waiting for Swansea to tell me what’s going on and only then might my job kick in.

“Neil hasn’t spoken to anyone at Fulham — nobody has — but I believe Fulham have probably recognised that Swansea are blessed with two very good left-backs."
