The Daily Record states both Scottish Premiership champions and League One Sunderland have submitted bids for the one-cap Scottish international full-back.

Both clubs are reportedly likely to hold further talks with Kilmarnock to see if they can strike a deal. Kilmarnock’s board are set to discuss both bids, although neither offer has been accepted yet.

Killie’s management have slapped a £3m valuation on Taylor, who was named in Scotland squad for the double-header with Russia and Belgium, which could price the Black Cats out of a move.

Sunderland have reportedly tabled a bid for the Scotland international.

The Hoops are also reluctant to meet Kilmarnock’s valuation and were looking at other options but have been provoked into revisiting the deal after Sunderland’s bid.

Taylor has made it clear to Killie boss Angelo Alessio that he wants to talk to both Sunderland and Celtic.
