Stuart Taylor on signing for United...
United’s first signing of the summer Stuart Taylor says it is fantastic to join such as massive club.
The experienced goalkeeper has visited Elland Road as an opposition player in the past and says he can’t wait to feel the atmosphere from the point of view as a home player.
“It’s fantastic to sign for Leeds United,” admitted Stuart. “It is a massive club and it’s a club with massive support.
Whenever I have played against a Leeds team or been involved in a team that has gone to Elland Road the support has been amazing. That is something that will be nice to be involved with.
“After speaking to the head coach it was obvious I have been brought in to bring a bit of experience.
“I’ve been around a long time and I know the game and if I can help the younger lads around me that’s great. But obviously if I’m called upon to play I know I can do a job. I’m looking forward to it.”

Taylor has played the majority of his career as a back-up goalkeeper but he says that he hasn’t come to United just to make up the numbers, but admits competition is likely.
“If I can be the number one that’s great, that is what everyone wants to be,” said Taylor. “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.”
