Charlton consider move for former Leeds man Stuart Taylor

Charlton Athletic - The Valley

HITC Sport understands Charlton Athletic are weighing up a move former Leeds United goalkeeper Stuart Taylor.

HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club that former Leeds United goalkeeper Stuart Taylor is training at Charlton Athletic with a view to a possible move.

Taylor is a free agent after leaving Leeds earlier this summer when his contract at Elland Road expired.

The 34-year-old made just five appearances for Leeds last season after failing to dislodge Marco Silvestri as No.1 goalkeeper at the club.

Taylor started his career at Arsenal, who he helped to win the Premier League title in 2001-02, before spells at Aston Villa and Manchester City.

During his three seasons at Manchester City he played once, a 4-2 victory over Scunthorpe United in the FA Cup fourth round.

After leaving City Taylor joined Reading, but he only made four appearances during his two seasons at the Madejski Stadium.

If Taylor impresses during his training stint at Charlton he could earn himself a deal at the Valley to provide cover and competition for first-choice 'keeper Stephen Anderson.
