Stuart Taylor: Joins Leeds

Leeds have made their first summer signing with the arrival of former Reading goalkeeper Stuart Taylor .

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.

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
