New Town signing reveals his former boss at Newcastle often spoke about the Club with the defender now delighted to finally join the Blues

Steven Taylor has spoken of his delight at joining a 'proper' football club - after being educated all about the Blues  by his former Newcastle mentor, Sir Bobby Robson.

The central defender has joined Town on a deal until the end of the season, subject to international clearance, and is excited to get started under Mick McCarthy, after spending the best part of a week training at Portman Road prior to the move.

"The gaffer has been really positive with me and I'm delighted to get this opportunity now," the former Portland Timbers man exclusively told Ipswich Player HD.

"I've been training with the Club for a while and the lads have made me feel right at home from minute one. They've made me feel really welcome within the group and it's been an enjoyable week or so in the building.

"I know all about the history of the Club and Sir Bobby Robson and Charlie Woods, who I played under at Newcastle, would always talk about how great a club Ipswich is, so I'm delighted to be here now.

"It's a 'proper' football club, if that's the right way of putting it. There's a great history behind the Club, it's a very professional set up and there's a good 'feel factor' when you walk through the door, so I just can't wait to get started now."
