"Matty will feel it's a good deal for him and we feel it's a good deal for the football club. [LNB]"He was going into the last year of his contract and West Ham were offering a three or four-year contract. [LNB]"I just think when you looked at the business side, £2.2million was a good deal all round.[LNB]"Matty Taylor is a great lad. I've got so much time for him and he goes with our best wishes. [LNB]"We've loved working with him, but sometimes in football things move on, people move on to pastures new."
