Wigan Athletic utility man Ryan Taylor is being reported as a make weight in the deal to bring Olivier Kapo to the JJB from Birmingham City

Undoubtedly talented, Taylor was likened to David Beckham for his dead-ball deliveries only 2 months ago by Latics boss Steve Bruce and now it seems he is willing to let the youngster go.

Taylor joined Latics from Tranmere Rovers for a fee of £750,000 in July 2005 on a four year contract; he is the 2nd longest serving player currently at the club behind Mike Pollitt

Surely Taylor is too good a player and too versatile to let go, being able to play in both defence and midfield effectively and as he has shown, being comfortable equally on the left and the right makes him a valuable asset for the Latics squad

In my opinion Taylor should be offered a new contract not shown the exit door and he is far too talented to be spending time in the Championship
