Taylor pens new Bolton deal

Published Add your comment

Bolton midfielder Matt Taylor has pledged his long-term future to the club by signing a one-year extension to his contract.

He is the third member of the squad to agree a new deal and manager Gary Megson is delighted to secure his services until the summer of 2012.

With Kevin Davies and Gary Cahill also committing to the club, Megson said: "Matt is a hard working player, who always gives his all. He scored 10 goals last season and is a big influence with his set-pieces and his work-rate."

Taylor joined Bolton from Portsmouth in January 2008 for a fee believed to be around £4million.

Such was his good form last season Megson thought the 27-year-old was worthy of England recognition.

Megson added: "Matt had a key role to play last season and will again this season. He is another member of the squad who leads by example.

"He and his family are settled in the area and I am sure he can go from strength to strength at this club."

Megson is looking for his side to bounce back at Hull on Saturday after they lost on the opening day to Sunderland.
