Taylor is an experienced defender, and he has also overcome his recent injury problems.

The 30-year-old remains a decent football player, and he would be able to do a good job for Celtic or Rangers in the Scottish Premiership.

Hull could do with the experience of Taylor in the Premier League, while Brighton could use him in their quest to get promoted from the Championship at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.
