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.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
