Mick hoping to add to squad as Tayls departs for Rotherham

Mick McCarthy says he hopes to bring in a replacement for Paul Taylor after the striker headed to Rotherham on a standard loan. 

The 26-year-old striker, who made his 25th appearance for Blues in the Capital One Cup defeat by Crawley on Tuesday, has been on the fringes of the side over the past year since recovering from a foot injury that saw him miss almost 12 months of football. 

Mick made the former Peterborough striker available for transfer at the end of last term and is looking to find an immediate replacement for the former Peterborough player.

“My stance hasn’t changed from last season and Tayls needs to go out and play games,” the Town boss told the Club website. 

“If he plays regularly and gets some momentum going, then he may get back whatever it was he had before. 

“Let’s hope he does, for him and for us. If he does then there might still be a home for him here, although I doubt it very much under me but we might be able to sell him on.”

Taylor will be amongst familiar faces at Rotherham, with former Town ‘keeper Scott Loach and ex-Blues loanees Frazer Richardson and Paul Green at the Club, with Mick adding: “With Tayls there until January, I hope to bring someone in as a replacement.”
