Taylor, a former Northern Ireland international, has yet to feature for Simon Grayson’s side.

Grayson told the club’s official website: “Maik has got good experience to be in and around the squad and obviously if anything happens to Andy Lonergan, Maik can step in.”

Taylor’s initial deal was due to expire after Leeds’ home match with Ipswich on January 21.
