Football: Taylor move goes on hold

Welsh international Gareth Taylor's move from First Division Sheffield United to Utrecht is in doubt. The striker appeared to finish his Blades' career with a flourish yesterday by scoring in United's 4-1 defeat of Charlton. He scored the first and then tossed his shirt into the crowd at the end as fans chanted his name. This appears to have led to the United board getting cold feet over a pounds 700,000 deal.

The United board are to discuss the situation within the next seven days, particularly as Utrecht have been told they might be able to sign fellow forward Jan Age Fjortoft. Should Fjortoft leave, the chance that Taylor would follow is remote.
