Peter Taylor is still interested in becoming Notts County's next manager.

Taylor has been out of work since his departure from Wycombe in early October.The Coca-Cola League Two club are poised to turn their attentions to finding a new permanent boss after securing investment to pay off all their debts, including a reported £324,206 sum to HM Revenue and Customs.

Taylor told Press Association Sport:"I have admitted my interest in the job before and that is still the case. I would be a liar to say I'm not interested in being manager at Notts County."

He added: "However, nothing has happened and I didn't expect it to because the club has had so many problems to deal with recently. But I am delighted for them that it all appears to be sorted out now."

Taylor was at Dagenham & Redbridge on Tuesday night to watch County's 3-0 win. However, the 57-year-old insists his presence at Victoria Road was merely a 'massive coincidence'.

Taylor said: "I live close to Dagenham so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to go and have a look at a game.

"I always planned to go and watch Notts County so it was just a massive coincidence it was on the same night that the club announced its news about the investment.

"I did meet with (executive chairman) Peter Trembling for the first time. It was only a five-minute chat before the game.

"I also had a chat with (director of football) Sven-Goran Eriksson because I have known him for a long time. We spoke about football, but not about anything in particular."

Dave Kevan has been in charge since Hans Backe's resignation in mid-December, but former England Under-21 boss Taylor expressed his interest in the job at Meadow Lane just days after the Swede's departure.
