Former Newcastle defender Ryan Taylor signs for ISL champions ATK

ISL champions ATK have announced the signing of former Newcastle United player Ryan Taylor.

Taylor, 33, left Newcastle in 2015 and joined Hull for one season before signing a short-term deal with League One club Port Vale.

The former England under-21 international was signed by ATK as a replacement for the injured Carl Baker and will join up with his new side in the coming days.

"I am very excited to play for ATK," he said. "I know ATK has a huge fan following who share a high level of passion for their team. I will give my best, for the team and we will get back to winning ways."

Taylor, who is known for his excellent free kick taking and dead ball skills, will join England legend Teddy Sheringham, who is head coach, as well as ex-Tottenham Hotspur and Republic of Ireland international Robbie Keane.
