Swansea left-back Neil Taylor has attracted interest from Southampton who want him at the Dell in case Luke Shaw decides to leave.

Fulham tried to secure Taylor’s services back in February, but their £4million bid was turned down by Swansea.

The 25-year-old has grown unsettled at Swansea due to constant injuries which has restricted him to just 23 appearances over the last two seasons and has seemingly lost his place in the squad to youngster Ben Davies.

Taylor recently gave an interview to Sky Sports and when asked about his future at Swansea the Welshman responded: 'I've no idea. The most important thing is that you do your job for the team and that's what I've had to do.

'I'm going to have a holiday with my family and think about it over the summer. But I'm contracted to the club and that's as far as my thinking goes.

'I can't say whether I expect to be here or not - players don't know as much as you think. I can't tell you what's going to happen because I don't know.'

Taylor has made 80 Premier League appearances for Swansea so far and has earned 15 caps for his country.
