Matt Taylor Signs for West Ham
West Ham have officially confirmed the signing of Matt Taylor from Bolton for an undisclosed fee.
The left-sided midfielder is Sam Allardyce's third signing after Abdoulaye Faye and Kevin Nolan.
Matt Taylor said, on signing for West Ham,
"I have had good conversations with the gaffer, he is such a positive person. I think you can see already the aura around the place and the quality of players he has brought in to add to the players already here.
"From a totally impartial point of view, I couldn't see anything other than that I was coming to a great football club and wanted to be part of it.
"As I said, ultimately it is a huge football club and I want to play my part if I can. There were never any second thoughts about coming here. It is a big challenge for me which I am looking forward to, to be part of helping the team get back up to the Premier League and do that as soon as possible.
"I see this as a very positive move for me. I don't expect to be playing Championship football for more than one season if I am being totally honest. I just want to get stuck in and start playing. I think it is going to be a great season."
