Liverpool-born attacker Jon Taylor joined the Millers in July 2016 for a club record undisclosed fee from Peterborough United.

Taylor’s earliest involvement with a professional club was with Wigan Athletic by whom he was released as a trainee in 2008, which prompted Shropshire club Shrewsbury to swoop for his services following a recommendation from former midfielder Tony Kelly.

He would progress through the youth ranks at Greenhous Meadow to earn a debut for the Shrews in 2010 which would be the first of over 130 appearances he would go on to make for the club, with his keen eye for a goal also seeing him notch over 20 goals.

Following Shrewsbury’s relegation to League Two, Peterborough United came calling, landing Taylor’s services in 2014 for an undisclosed fee. His two seasons at ABAX Stadium saw him make 68 appearances, scoring 14 goals in the process.

Durin the 2016-17 season, Taylor's hard-working and energetic displays endeared him to Millers fans. He made 43 appearances, scoring in the games against Nottingham Forest, Birmingham and Blackburn.

Taylor was again heavily involved as the Millers made an instant return to The Championship. The pint-sized operator scored a brace as the Millers beat Walsall 5-1 on home soil, and crucially also netted in the first-leg of the Play-off semi-final, fiirst leg against Scunthorpe. In total he made 32 appearances, including a start in the Play-off Final at Wembley, as the Millers earned promotion back to The Championship.
