Notts County eyeing free transfer swoop for League Two midfielder



Notts County and Walsall are both interested in Morecambe’s out-of-contract midfielder Jake Taylor, according to writer Alan Nixon on his Patreon.

Notts County and Walsall will both compete in League Two football next season. They finished 14th and 11th in League Two, respectively, and will now focus on relaxing before the 2024/25 season.

New additions will undoubtedly be part of their summer plans, and a new name has been linked to both the Magpies and the Saddlers.

Reporter Alan Nixon writes on his Patreon page that Morecambe midfielder Jake Taylor is a target for Notts County and Walsall as the summer transfer window approaches.

The 25-year-old’s contract expires soon, and with the Shrimps’ players’ salary being delayed, a number of those with expiring contracts may look elsewhere.

Taylor is among them, and with suitors in League Two, a move is possible. This season, the former Nottingham Forest and Port Vale player made 32 appearances across all competitions, bringing his total for Morecambe to 59. He’s scored once and assisted twice thus far.

Heading for the exit door?

Amid the latest financial squabble at Morecambe, it is quite likely that a handful of players will leave the north-west club when the summer arrives. Opportunistic organizations will see this as an opportunity to add some new players to their roster before the start of the season.

With Taylor reportedly on the radar, it appears like Notts County and Walsall may be looking to pounce. Taylor’s departure is likely, given the possibility of moving to a League Two opponent.

He has previous experience at this level, having played for Port Vale in League Two. Taylor has also tried himself in League One, but the level he is currently at is one he may well stay at after being in and out of Morecambe’s starting XI this season.
