Burton midfielder Cleveland Taylor has joined Blue Square Bet Premier side Grimsby on loan for the remainder of the season.

Taylor was told last week that he does not feature in manager Gary Rowett's future plans and that he is free to leave the club.

The 29-year-old, who joined Albion on a free transfer in the summer of 2011, has not made a first-team appearance since the FA Cup third-round defeat at Leicester on January 5, when he came on as a substitute after 62 minutes. His last start came in the league loss at Barnet on December 21.

Taylor will be available for Grimsby should they be involved in the play-offs. The Mariners are currently fifth in the Conference and occupy the final play-off spot.
