Taylor Joins Tranmere On Loan

Blackburn Rovers defender Andrew Taylor has left Ewood Park for a loan spell with Tranmere Rovers.

The loan (initially for 1-month) will see Taylor gain further first team football (as he has with previous loan spells with the likes of Queens Park Rangers, Huddersfield Town and Crewe Alexandra) as he looks to make that so far elusive breakthrough at Ewood Park. Tranmere manager Ronnie Moore is more than pleased with his capture, admitting that he has been watching the left-back for some time.

Moore told the Official Tranmere Rovers Website: "This is a great signing for the club.

"Andy is a talented attacking left-back who we have been monitoring for some time
."

Taylor has been among the highly rated, and one for the future school of though for many years now but he is still to make his senior debut for Rovers despite playing at various youth levels for England. With Tranmere short of defensive options, Taylor seems to fit the bill for a player they are looking for and Moore was more than appreciative that Tranmere were allowed to loan him.

He added: "I'm very grateful to Mark Hughes and Blackburn Rovers for allowing him to join us on loan.

"He is a great prospect who is very good on the ball and likes to get forward. He has played at this level before and has been capped by England, so he has good experience for his age
."

Taylor made his debut as a second half substitute against Doncaster Rovers on Saturday afternoon; Rovers have also given him permission to play in their Second Round FA Cup match.

Every time Taylor goes out on loan I think it will benefit him and Rovers but personally I don't think that he will have a future with Rovers, as much as I would want him to.
Hopefully though he still can, and this loan will be good for him (but I do feel the usual sense of deja vu!)

Hughes should either sell or keep in the first team picture, its not a good situation for the boy or the club.
VanMan
this makes good sense to me... he came back from his last loan spell and was told to push for a first team place and didnt quite manage it. So he is sent out on loan because Hughes feels he is good enough given more time.

I hope so dude, but I'm not so sure we will ever see Taylor given that chance at Rovers? As others are coming through ahead of him, as well as other being signed/will be signed. I hope I'm wrong though.
Hughes Da Man
He will find it difficult with Olsson playing well.
MikeyGamst
Yeah we have Stevie W and Martin Olsson, both ahead of him in the queue. Good luck to him but he is going to have to go some to make a career at Ewood isn't he.
Hughes Da Man
will he come back this time ???................
ernshaw
The tranmere boss seems to think he is a "diamond".
MikeyGamst
With respect to Tranmere most players coming from a Premier League club would be diamonds wouldn't they!
I don't doubt that he will return, I just don't think he will return to play anytime soon.
