Former Peterborough man to join Rovers on loan after effectively ending his Town career earlier this month

  • Striker makes Rovers switch
  • Ends his career at Portman Road
  • Cannot play against Town on final

Paul Taylor has joined Blackburn on loan until the end of the season, subject to paperwork.

The striker, who agreed to terminate his contract with the Blues recently, officially remained a Town player until today’s loan deadline of March 26th in order for him to find a new club.

The Liverpudlian will now team up with Gary Bowyer’s side for the rest of the season, after spending time training with Rovers, earlier this month.

The striker won’t be able to play against Town when the two sides meet on the final day of the season, although he has permission to feature for Blackburn in the FA Cup.

Taylor spent time on loan with Championship rivals Rotherham earlier this season, as well as making his sole Town appearance this term in the Capital One Cup defeat to Crawley.

Having arrived at Portman Road from Peterborough in 2012, the striker went on to make nine starts and 16 sub appearances for the Blues- scoring once during last season’s win over Blackpool.

A toe injury not long after he joined the Club dogged his progress, as he spent almost a year on the sidelines, before returning to Posh on loan for a second stint.
