Swansea City have confirmed they have rejected a bid from Fulham for Wales full-back Neil Taylor.

Taylor, 24, has struggled to hold down a regular place in manager Michael Laudrup's side due to the emergence of Ben Davies.

Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen had confirmed earlier in the day at a press conference that they had made a bid for the defender.

"Yes, we have put a bid in," said Meulensteen.

Taylor is back to full fitness after being dogged by injury problems for the last few seasons.

The 14-times capped Wales defender suffered multiple fractures and a dislocation to his ankle in September 2012.

Davies emerged at the Liberty Stadium during Taylor's enforced absence and has emerged a his main challenger for club and country.

Taylor played for Great Britain in the 2012 London Olympics.
