Taylor: Players wouldn't swap playing for Swansea for anything

The Welsh defender is adamant that Brendan Rodgers will keep hold of his stars, despite interest from other clubs following a successful first season in the Premier League
Swansea left-back Neil Taylor is confident the club can retain the services of their top players following a successful maiden Premier League campaign.

The Swans, who currently sit in 10th place on 39 points, have taken the top flight by storm, recording victories over Manchester City and Arsenal in the process.

Manager Brendan Rodgers is bracing himself for a flurry of bids for his top performers such as Scott Sinclair, Joe Allen and Ashley Williams to name a few.

However, Taylor, who himself was a target for Newcastle at the start of this season, believes that the players will stay at the Liberty stadium.

The Wales international said: "We have done it together as a football club and every player and manager knows what a special football club it is to be at, especially with the style of football we play.

"I don't think any of the players here would swap it for anything.

"In those terms, it is a football club that is growing and if it ends up being a top-10 football club, there are not many places you want to go that will be better than here.

"While things happen in the summer, as they always do, our players are doing really well here.

"Money and all those sorts of things can make you think it's great, but the feeling you get after a game like at Fulham (a 3-0 win earlier this month), having played as a team and the style we played; you can't replace that with anything.

"That is a big factor for players at this club."
