Phil Taylor says that he is planning to retire in two years' time, but not before he wins some more titles.

Phil Taylor has revealed that he could call time on his darts career "in a couple of years".

The 53-year-old took his career tally to 51 titles last night thanks to a whitewash of Dave Chisnall at the World Grand Prix in Dublin.

Although he has admitted that he will soon throw in the towel to spend more time with his family, the 16-time world champion has insisted that he is still addicted to winning for the time being.

"I love every minute. The will to win, it's in your DNA and the older you get, the more you appreciate it," he told Sky Sports News.

"I love it when people write me off. Keep on doing it because it only makes me improve.

"You're always going to have people who run you down but everybody wants to be a winner, everybody remembers a winner. Life's about winning.

"I can see the end - in a couple of years I want to spend more time with my grandkids, go on holiday. But until then I want to keep pushing forward and keep setting more and more records."

The next significant title that Taylor will contest is the World Championships in December.
