Taylor only signed a new deal in the summer, but was forced down the pecking order when manager Jean Tigana swooped to sign Dutch international van der Sar from Juventus.
The 30-year-old, who has played just two games this term, admitted that he may have to move on at the end of the season unless the scenario changes.
He said: "The manager gave me his word that at the end of the season if nothing has changed we will sit down and talk again.
"The fact that I've signed a new deal is good for the family, but the bottom line is I'm not playing and he accepts that. He has asked me to give him a good year and then we will sit down and talk again at the end of the season."
Commenting on his position behind van der Sar, Taylor added: "There's no question he's a world-class goalkeeper and we're not talking about any old goalkeeper here. I've got to be realistic and I'm not going to play unless he gets injured really because he's that good.
"That might mean looking for another challenge somewhere else, but we will see when the time comes."
