Young Chelsea keeper Taylor ready for Crewe loan

Crewe Alexandra chief Dario Gradi is hopeful of signing Chelsea's highly-rated young goalkeeper Rhys Taylor on loan this week. Former Alex coach Steve Holland, now in charge of the reserve set-up at the Premier League champions, has recommended 20-year-old Taylor to Gradi.

"I think he's just signed a new contract at Chelsea where they have high hopes for him," said Gradi.

"I expect Phillips to sign for us but I don't expect him to be fit to start the season, so he (Taylor) could start the season in goal."
