Burnley eye former Hammer

TaylorMatt Taylor is expected to swap the claret and blue of the Irons for that Burnley.

Claretandhugh understands that the much travelled former Hammer – who was released at the end of last season – is set for talks with the newly promoted outfit.

The thirty-two year old is believed to have held talks with Turf Moor manager Sean Dyche but has other options.

There was a rumour circulating yesterday that the Hammers may have had second thoughts on Taylor and may be ready to offer him an improved deal.

But ClaretandHugh understands that Dyche is set to open talks with the player and that a deal could possibly be done soon.
