Lifelong Aston Villa fan Ian Taylor joined his boyhood club from Sheffield Wednesday.

In his first season Taylor helped Villa to stay in the Premier League, and he then played a key part as they finished fourth the following year, netting against Manchester United, Wimbledon and Southampton.

He also scored in the 1996 League Cup final, which Aston Villa won.

Taylor became a fan favourite and spent nine seasons at Villa Park, scoring 28 league goals from midfield.
