‘I feel sorry for you lot’ – These fans react as Wolves man makes EFL switch

Wolves midfielder Terry Taylor has joined League One Burton Albion on a permanent deal.

The 19-year-old signs a two-and-a-half-year deal, with a ‘financial package‘ agreed to compensate for the move. He joins a Brewers side battling against relegation from League One, having appeared just once for Wolves, in the EFL Cup against Aston Villa.

Burton boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink spoke of his delight at capturing the youngster: “He’s not played that many men’s football games yet but we’re really excited that he’s chosen us to come to for two-and-a-half years, there was a lot of interest in him.”

Hasselbaink only took over at Burton recently, with the previous manager Jake Buxton sacked following the 4-3 defeat at home to Wigan Athletic, which came on the back of a 5-1 mauling away at Lincoln City. The change of manager appears to be a catalyst for the move, as Taylor explained.

“It feels great and I’m delighted to be here. I can’t wait to get playing. I know Burton have been watching me for a couple of seasons, but I think the real interest came from the new manager.”

Taylor, who has represented both Scotland and Wales at youth level, has spent the first half of the current season on-loan with League Two strugglers Grimsby Town. where he started 11 matches. He hadn’t featured since manager Ian Holloway left the club, with new boss Paul Hurst not giving him game time. That led to a Wolves recall, although it did seem they would look for another loan for Taylor, not a permanent move.

Burton fans have been quick to welcome him to the club on social media, whilst some Grimsby fans have also offered their opinions too.
