Taylor: Villa's Freidel convinced me about Man City

New Manchester City signing Stuart Taylor admits he spoke with Aston Villa teammate Brad Friedel before accepting a move to Eastlands.

It offers Taylor a chance to see if boss Mark Hughes, and goalkeeping coach Kevin Hitchcock, live up to their impressive billing after Friedel worked with the duo at Blackburn.

"I talked to Brad for some advice and he couldn't speak highly enough," Taylor told mcfc.co.uk.

"I can't wait to start.

"This is a fantastic club to be joining, a club that is going places."
