Jason Taylor joins Cheltenham Town from Rotherham

Cheltenham have signed midfielder Jason Taylor from League Two promotion rivals Rotherham on a free transfer.

The 26-year-old has committed to a two-and-a-half-year deal at Whaddon Road after his contract with the Millers was terminated by mutual consent.

Taylor joined Rotherham in 2009, following a three-year spell at Stockport, and went on to make 136 appearances, scoring 10 goals.

We were fairly surprised when he was put our way but we are very happy to have signed him

Meanwhile, Reading have recalled Jake Taylor from his loan with the Robins.

The 21-year-old first signed for Cheltenham in November and extended his contract until the end of January.

He made nine starts and two substitute appearances, scoring once in the 4-0 Boxing Day victory over Wycombe.

Commenting on Jason Taylor's arrival, manager Mark Yates told the club website:  "We are delighted to have signed Jason - this was a no brainer.

"We were fairly surprised when he was put our way but we are very happy to have signed him. He is a leader, a winner and he will add something extra to our already talented midfield."
