Ex-Birmingham defender Taylor delighted with Watford move

Former Birmingham City defender Martin Taylor is happy with his permanent move to Watford.

The January signing from Birmingham, who made his debut in Tuesday night's 3-0 win over Sheffield United, admits Hornets boss Malky Mackay played a major role in persuading him to drop down a division.

"I spoke to Malky and was really impressed by him," said Taylor.

He added: "Watford have got a great tradition and I spoke to a lot of people who have played here and know the club, and they said Watford are a good young side and there's a lot of positives here.

"I wasn't really playing at Birmingham and it was time to move on to a new adventure, and after speaking to the manager I thought it was a great opportunity for me."
