Liverpool step up talks with Birmingham keeper Taylor

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez hopes to land goalkeeper Maik Taylor from relegated Birmingham City.

Charles Itandje has failed to cut it in the top flight when called upon and Taylor, 36, has more than a decade of Premier League experience behind him.
