The 27-year-old centre-back has reportedly attracted the attention of national team boss Roy Hodgson after a series of consistent displays for the Magpies.

Taylor, whose progress has been hampered by injury in recent seasons, got close to his Three Lions debut when he was an unused substitute against Germany in 2007.

And the former England Under 21 player remains hopeful the long wait could be over soon.

"Even last season I tried and it didn't happen but I must keep plugging away with Newcastle and maintain my form."

"I got injured against Chelsea but since coming back I've been in great shape. If I stay injury free I'll keep my fingers crossed.

"It's been hard work in the gym but it has helped me out a lot."

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...
