Bolton boss Owen Coyle has confirmed Bolton have agreed a fee with West Ham United for the sale of midfielder Matt Taylor.

Taylor was left out of the pre-season victories over Orlando City and Houston Dynamo in America last week and flew back to England to hold talks with Sam Allardyce's Hammers.

A £2.2million fee is thought to have been agreed between the two clubs and Coyle believes the deal will suit all parties involved.

"It is a fantastic fee," Coyle told The Bolton News. "Matty will feel it's a good deal for him and we feel it's a good deal for the football club.

"He was going into the last year of his contract and West Ham were offering a three or four-year contract.

"I just think when you looked at the business side, £2.2million was a good deal all round.

"Matty Taylor is a great lad. I've got so much time for him and he goes with our best wishes.

"We've loved working with him, but sometimes in football things move on, people move on to pastures new."
