Taylor, 33, who has penned a one-year contract, travelled to Italy with the first-team squad on Monday for pre-season training.

Head coach David Hockaday told the club's official website: "I'm absolutely delighted to get Stuart Taylor here. He comes highly recommended by everybody. He has lots of experience and is a great professional.

"He will be perfect for our dressing room because we have a very young team. I'd like to give Stuart a big welcome to Leeds United."

Taylor began his career at Arsenal before moving on to Aston Villa in 2005 and had a spell at Manchester City from the summer of 2009 to August 2012.

He failed to make a first-team appearance last season at Reading, where his contract expired earlier this month.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
