Burton Albion have re-signed winger Cleveland Taylor on a two-year deal.

Taylor, who spent six months on loan with the Brewers in the 2009-10 season, has just been released by Scottish Premier League side St Johnstone.

The 27-year-old told BBC Radio Derby: "In a way it feels like coming back home, the last time I felt like this was at Scunthorpe really.

"Once I came here on loan, I got that same feeling, that same buzz and that same enthusiasm for the game again."

Taylor, who rejected Burton's offer of a permanent deal last summer in order to join Saints, said his decision to move to Scotland on a one-year deal was no reflection on his time at the Pirelli Stadium.

"The SPL is a massive step," Taylor explained.

"I'd have been a fool to not have tried that and people might have questioned why I didn't try that. Now I can sit down and tell my kids I've played against Celtic, Rangers, Hibs, Hearts, I can say I've done it."

Burton boss Paul Peschisolido added: "I think there was quite a void down that right hand after Cleveland left.

"I made no bones about the fact I was desperate to keep him but he had a chance to play in the Scottish Premier League and did so.

"But I've remained in contact with him over the last year and knew he was keen to come back and i know he really enjoyed his time here with the lads and enjoyed being at the club."
