West Ham United are close to capturing Bolton wing back Matthew Taylor.

As has been widely reported, the 29-year-old left-sided player has returned early from Bolton's tour of the United States to undergo contract negotiations with representatives of West Ham.

And should those talks progress as planned, the former Luton and Portsmouth star could become a Hammer as early as the weekend.

With manager Sam Allardyce currently in Denmark with his squad for tonight's pre-season friendly with FC Copenhagen, Taylor is currently thrashing out personal terms on a deal said to be worth 2.2million, according to the Bolton News.

The fee is understood to have been already been agreed between the two clubs, with the player having just one year left of his existing contract. Stoke City are also said to have expressed an interest in signing Taylor.

Meanwhile co-chairman David Gold, posting via Twitter this afternoon admitted that the club were on the verge of making their third capture of pre-season. "We are close to signing a new player," he said, adding that: "the window does not close till the 1st of Sept".
