Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor is reportedly disillusioned at St James Park and wants a move to Liverpool.
Owner Mike Ashley is refusing to allow Chris Hughton the scope for big transfers spending, something the centre-back believes is needed.
London-born Taylor has been at the club for over a decade now and has been loyal to them after relegation to the Championship.
New Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson has reputedly offered £6 million for the 24-year-old and Taylor is considering his options.
A Newcastle source told the Express: “Steven is frustrated over the lack of ambition. Like all Newcastle fans, he just wants the club to become a force again.”
Taylor would also have liked more backing from the club after a fracas with striker Andy Carroll during training last season.
