No sale says McCann as Stags prepare third bid for Taylor

Peterborough United manager Grant McCann has issued a ‘hands off’ notice regarding striker Paul Taylor.
Taylor is understood to have been the subject of multiple bids from League Two side Mansfield Town, but McCann insists the 29-year-old is going nowhere.
Stags boss Steve Evans has taken right-back Hayden White and striker Shaquile Coulthirst on loan from Posh in recent days. He is understood to have bid up to £200,000 for Taylor who is out of contract at the end of the season.
Evans has hinted he is chasing a third signing from Posh.
“Paul Taylor is going nowhere,” McCann stated, “He will be with us for the rest of the season at least.
“We took a chance on Paul when no else wanted him in the summer, but all off a sudden he’s a person of interest.
“He’s really turned his life around. He has two young boys so he’s settled at home. The lads love him as a player and a person and he comes in every day and trains hard.
“He’s played well for us in general. Like some others he could have scored more goals. but he is a big part of my plans this season.”
Taylor, who has scored five goals this season, might not start tomorrow’s (January 21) League One game at Swindon.
