Walsall loan Connor Taylor to Nuneaton Town

Nuneaton Town have signed striker Connor Taylor on a month's loan from League One Walsall.

The Coventry-born 21-year-old, who was released by Aston Villa in the summer following a short loan spell at Tamworth, can play either wide right up front or through the middle.

Taylor could be one of two Boro loan debutants in Saturday's home game against Barrow.

New keeper Adam Smith is also in the squad followng his move from Leicester.

"Connor spent pre-season with us after his release from Aston Villa and brings a good pedigree from his time there," said Boro assistant-manager Micky Moore.

"We have continued to monitor his progress and spoke on a regular basis to Walsall manager Dean Smith and his number two Richard O'Kelly, who we thank for assisting with the move."
