Some Sunderland fans have taken to Twitter to discuss the future of Lyle Taylor after Charlton Athletic manager Lee Bowyer recently revealed that the 30-year-old forward won’t feature for the Addicks in the Championship for the remainder of the 2019/20 season, following the EFL’s recent announcement that the second tier will resume on the weekend of 20th June.

This news regarding Taylor comes after the attacker, who is currently valued at £1.26m according to Transfermarkt, was recently a guest on ‘The Conv3rsation podcast’ where he revealed that he believes his current club has become a “circus”, as per the Sheffield Star

This report from the Sheffield Star, which was published in May, also stated that Taylor revealed that he was yet to receive a new contract offer from the Addicks, with his current deal set to expire at the end of June, whilst this article also quotes Taylor as saying that he would have been earning “more money at Sunderland” than he was earning at the Addicks. Taylor held talks with the Black Cats prior to joining Charlton back in 2018, as explained in a recent article from Chronicle Live

Now, this latest news regarding Taylor’s decision not to feature for Charlton for the remainder of the 2019/20 season has got some Sunderland fans talking about the 30-year-old’s future after one Black Cats fan sparked some conversation about the forward on Twitter.

Some Sunderland supporters have stated that they don’t think their club could attract Taylor to the Stadium of Light.

Considering that he has been linked with Sunderland before, it may be understandable why this news regarding Taylor has caught the attention of some Black Cats fans.
