A brilliant opportunity

30 May 2013

New signing Chris Taylor believes Blackburn Rovers is the perfect club for him to join.

The 26-year-old arrives from fellow Championship side Millwall, signing a two-year deal until the summer of 2015, and the midfielder is excited about the challenge that lies ahead.

Speaking exclusively to Rovers Player, the former Oldham trainee said: "It is brilliant. When I first heard that Blackburn were interested in me it was simply an opportunity I couldn't miss.

"They are a massive club with ambitions of getting into the Premier League next season."

Taylor, who is comfortable playing anywhere across midfield, believes that the move to Ewood Park will help him improve as a player.

"I really enjoyed my time at Millwall so it was tough to leave, but it has worked out well that a big club like Blackburn was interested in me.

"I think it is the next step up for me and hopefully I can continue to improve and get better.

"I know that there are some quality players here and I know that I will have to work as hard as I ever have to get amongst the starting 11, but I feel that once I'm in there hopefully I can stay there."
