Bolton manager Owen Coyle has wished West Ham-bound Matt Taylor the best of luck for the future.

Coyle, talking to the Bolton News this morning confirmed that Taylor was set to sign for West Ham - as revealed here on KUMB earlier in the week.

"Matty Taylor is a great lad," said Coyle. "Ive got so much time for him and he goes with our best wishes. Weve loved working with him but sometimes in football things move on, people move on to pastures new."

Coyle also revealed that he and his club were delighted at the deal, said to be worth around 2million, which will see the left-sided player - who is said to be one of the highest earners at the Reebok Stadium - join the Hammers on a long-term contract.

It is a fantastic fee," he continued. "Matty will feel its a good deal for him and we feel its 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."
