Huddersfield Manager Peter Jackson has opened discussions with Blackburn over extending left-back Andy Taylor’s loan.

The initial Galpharm spell doesn’t end until after Saturday’s League I trip to Nottingham Forest. But Jackson is keen to sort out Taylor’s immediate future before he takes the game.

The development comes after Crewe manager Dario Gradi revealed he was keen to have Taylor back at Gresty Road.

The Ewood academy product, yet to make a first-team appearance for his parent club, played six times on loan at Crewe in October and November.

And Gradi, whose side beat Town 2-1 in West Yorkshire on Saturday, said: ‘I like Andy. He’s a very good young player.

‘I wanted to sign him again earlier this month and spoke to my contact at Blackburn, Glynn Hodges, who I had as young player at Crewe.

‘But Peter (Jackson) had beaten me to it, and I think he’s got himself as good deal.’

Taylor made fourth Town appearance against Crewe, and Jackson rated it his best for the club.

‘Andy struggled a bit with illness when he first came here, but he’s settling down well,’ said Jackson.

‘I’m keen to keep him for another month, and hopefully Blackburn will be agreeable.’

‘Hopefully Blackburn will take the view that it’s better for Andy to keep getting first-team games under his belt than to play Reserve football,’ added Jackson.

Should the eal be extended, Rovers would have an instant recall facility

What do you think, do you want to see Taylor stay on or would you prefer Skarz was given the shirt ?
