Last updated : 03 August 2003 By Footymad
Reports on Saturday morning had suggested that the Northern Ireland international keeper had moved to St. Andrew's on a season long loan deal with the official Birmingham website running an interview with what they claimed to be their new signing.

However, Fulham issued a statement on their official site denying any deal had been finalised, leaving fans of both clubs non-the wiser.

The statement on the Fulham official website reads: "Contrary to reports on the Birmingham City official website, we can confirm that although talks have taken place between Fulham FC and Birmingham City FC regarding the loan of Maik Taylor, a suitable agreement is yet to be reached."
