Sheffield United striker Lyle Taylor joins Partick Thistle on loan

Partick Thistle have announced their first signing ahead of the January transfer window, with the capture of Sheffield United striker Lyle Taylor.

The Scottish Premiership club reported on their website that the 23-year-old Englishman will join on loan until the end of the season.

Thistle boss Alan Archibald said: "I'm delighted to have managed to bring Lyle to Firhill where he will complement the strikers that we already have at the club.

"He did really well with Falkirk scoring a barrow load of goals and that earned him his move to Sheffield United.

"Things haven't worked out for him with United, so far, which can happen when there is a change of manager but he carries a potent threat and has a real eye for a goal.

"He's quick and he is good getting in behind defenders as well. I'm sure he will prove to be an important addition to the squad for the second half of the season."

He is expected to start training on December 31st and will be part of the Thistle squad to face Celtic on New Year's Day.

Lyle is a former Millwall and Bournemouth player and, while with Falkirk, was voted the SPFA's First Division Player of the Year.

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
