The 26-year-old arrived at Banks's Stadium in August on non-contract terms before securing a deal until the end of the season.

And after a number of assured displays, Saddlers boss Dean Smith has secured the former Blackburn player's services for another 18 months.

"I'm really pleased that Andy has agreed this deal," Smith told the club's official website.

"He will be the first to admit that he came here with a lot of questions in his own mind having been out injured for a long period during his time at Sheffield United.

"But he has gone on to become a valuable member of the team here and has gradually built his fitness levels back up again.

"He's an experienced lad who has really helped the youngsters around him. He has put in a consistent level of performance for us and is also a great character and personality to have around the football club.

"This is another important piece of the jigsaw in place."

Taylor was released by Sheffield United in the summer after joining from Tranmere in 2009.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
