Scottish Premiership - Taylor set for Partick Thistle switch

Sheffield United striker Lyle Taylor will join Scottish Premier League side Partick Thistle on loan in January.

The 23-year-old, who has struggled to force his way into boss Nigel Clough's starting line-up following his arrival in the summer, will stay with Partick until the end of the season and could make his debut at Celtic on New Year's Day.

Taylor had an impressive spell in Scotland last season with Falkirk, where he scored 29 goals in 42 appearances before sealing a £220,000 move to Bramall Lane.

He has made a total of 25 appearances for the Blades, more than half of those off the substitutes' bench, and has scored two goals.
