LUFC Taylor ready to fight for first team place

LUFC Taylor ready to fight for first team place

New Leeds United signing Stuart Taylor says he is ready to fight for a first team place following his arrival at Elland Road.

Taylor has been a regular on the bench during a fifteen-year playing career that has seen him make just 90 appearances for nine different clubs.

The former England under-21 international is ready to fight for his place despite knowing that Leeds are looking to bring in a number one goalkeeper.

Speaking to the official website , Taylor said, "If I can be the number one that`s great, that is what everyone wants to be.

"No one is going to say that they don`t want to play.

"If you ask any footballer, they all want to be the first choice in their position and I`m no different.

"A number one is possibly coming in but we will go from there. It is all about challenging for places and having competition for places.

"I`ll obviously be working as hard as possible to get the shirt and if I can I`ll be happy."

Leeds have been strongly linked with Chievo goalkeeper Marco Silvestre this week whilst young Inter Milan goalkeeper Rafaele Di Gennaro has also been linked with a move to Elland Road in recent weeks.
