Taylor joins Burnley

West Ham United can confirm that midfielder Matt Taylor has joined Barclays Premier League new boys Burnley.

The 32-year-old spent three seasons with the Hammers, playing a starring role in the 2012 Championship Play-Off final victory over Blackpool at Wembley.

Taylor made 90 appearances in Claret and Blue, scoring three goals and playing his part in many more, including Carlton Cole's Play-Off final opener.

A versatile performer, the Oxford-born player turned out as a winger, full-back and central midfielder last season, helping the Hammers to reach the Capital One Cup semi-finals - scoring in a 2-0 fourth-round win at his new club - and starting eight of West Ham's eleven Barclays Premier League victories.

West Ham United would like to thank Matt for his efforts and wish him every success in his future career.
