EXCLUSIVE: St Mirren closing in on Taylor
St Mirren are closing in on a deal for Waterford’s Richard Taylor.
Buddies boss Stephen Robinson is looking to seal a move for the central defender.
The former Burnley youngster has come on to Robinson’s radar from head of recruitment Martin Foyle.
The 22-year-old was across to Paisley for a club visit.
He is now waiting to see if a deal can be agreed to see him move permanently when the transfer window opens next month.
Taylor has also had senior spells at Southend and at Dagenham and Redbridge.
Foyle has been a big factor in shaping Robinson’s squad, bringing in the likes of Jonah Ayunga and Toyosi Olusanya.
St Mirren had a strong start and now find themselves just outside the top six.
The Buddies board are set to back Robinson and his squad as they try to push for European football in the second half of the season.
