McLeish signals Taylor exit

13 December 2007 03:18
Birmingham City central defender Martin Taylor has been told that he can leave the club by new Blues boss Alex McLeish. The 28-year-old has returned to St Andrew's after a successful loan stint with Norwich City, but McLeish is expecting Taylor to exit on a permanent basis in the January transfer window. He commented: "I've spoken to Martin and he's down the pecking order. I've said if the right club comes in for him, it'll be time for him to move on. "He's done well for Norwich and helped them climb off the bottom of the Championship with his performances for them. "I think there are one or two clubs interested in Martin and he's weighing them up. I believe QPR are in the hunt." Taylor joined the Blues for £1.25million from Blackburn Rovers in February 2004 and has gone on to make 88 appearances for City, scoring two goals. He has also enjoyed loan spells with Darlington and Stockport County during his career.
