Scunthorpe confirm signing of Sheffield United striker Lyle Taylor

Scunthorpe United have today confirmed the signing of Sheffield United striker Lyle Taylor, reports BBC Sport. 

As reported on Football League World two days ago, Scunthorpe had agreed a fee with the Blades and the player was set to sign a two-year deal.

The Iron have now confirmed the 24-year-old on a two-year contract for an undisclosed fee and becomes their third signing since securing promotion to League One.

Taylor started his career at Millwall after being spotted playing for Staines Town’s youth team but never made an appearance for the Lions in two years at the club.

He then joined Concord Rangers where he scored 34 goals in 42 games which led to Bournemouth snapping him up in 2010.

The striker struggled on the south coast scoring twice in 34 games and following loan spells at Lewes, Hereford United and Woking, he joined Falkirk in 2012.

Taylor hit the ground running at Falkirk scoring twice on his debut and went on to score 29 goals in 34 games.

His form attracted interest which led to a proposed move to Rotherham United in the summer of 2013 but the deal fell through and he joined Sheffield United instead for an undisclosed fee.

Taylor failed to hold down a first-team place, finding the back of the net only twice in 25 matches, and following the appointment of Nigel Clough, he joined Partick Thistle on loan until the end of the season, scoring seven goals in 20 games.
