Taylor has had an impressive campaign for the Whites in the Championship and is being tipped in some quarters to be the next young player to leave for a Premier League club.

The 22-year-old, who racked up 43 appearances for Leeds this season, is said to be a target for the Black Cats, while Liverpool and Arsenal have also been tentatively linked with the defender.

Allardyce will be looking for competition for Patrick Van Aanholt on the left for next season and Taylor is a player he could pursue.

The Leeds man has previously said he wants to stay at Elland Road and help the Whites get back into the Premier League but he has been earmarked by several top-flight sides and may find it difficult to resist an offer from someone like Sunderland, who would hope to land Taylor for around £3million or less.
