Bradford City want to sign Peterborough United striker Paul Taylor this summer, according to Sunday’s print edition of The Sun.
Taylor, 29, has been at Peterborough since last summer and made 47 appearances for the club in all competitions this season, scoring six goals. However, he has now left the club after Peterborough decided against offering him a new deal.
Bradford manager Stuart McCall is understood to be keen on signing Taylor this summer following the departure of winger Mark Marshall to Charlton Athletic. Marshall turned down a new deal at Bradford and instead decided to make the move south.
Taylor has played on the wing for Peterborough this season and so should have no trouble filling the boots of the departed Marshall next season, despite being known as a striker.
As a youth player, Taylor had spells with Liverpool, Everton and Manchester City before joining Vauxhall Motors in 2007. The striker then had spells with Belgian sides Montegnée, Anderlecht and Charleroi before signing for Peterborough United in 2011.
Following a successful season, Taylor signed for Ipswich Town for a fee of £1.5 million. However, he failed to nail down a starting place and, after three loan spells, returned to Peterborough United at the beginning of this season for free.
Taylor started 25 times in League One this season and has a lot of experience in the league, so Stuart McCall will know what he is getting if he signs the player. Taylor will be hoping that he can help Bradford go one further next season and secure promotion to the Championship.
