Scott Taylor looks set to leave Hull KR

Hull KR are preparing to sell promising forward Scott Taylor to the highest bidder, chairman Neil Hudgell has revealed.

The 21-year-old prop, who played for England against the Exiles this summer, has 12 months left of his contract with the Robins but has refused to discuss an extension and has been linked with moves to Wigan and neighbours Hull FC.

"We have done all we can to try and tie Scott down longer term, with vastly-improved terms being offered," Hudgell told the Hull Daily Mail. "He refuses to negotiate at all, which is a very strong indicator to me that he doesn't want to be here any more."

Hudgell added: "It is a disappointment after what we have invested in him but I am not prepared to be backed into a corner on it and be dictated to by Scott and his agent.

"Inevitably I think that means he has played his last game for the club and we will sell him to the highest bidder."

Hull KR recently allowed stand-off Blake Green to join Wigan despite having two years left on his contract in a deal thought to be worth £100,000.
