Ardley delighted with Taylor capture

Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley is delighted with the capture of Lyle Taylor, admitting the striker was his number one target during the summer transfer window.

Taylor joined Wimbledon for an undisclosed fee after struggling to impress at Glanford Park last term.

He told Dons player: “I am absolutely delighted because I did not think I would be able to get this one over

“We needed to do great work behind the scenes, in particular from our Chief Executive Erik Samuelson, who was fantastic, to get this deal done.

“I was interested in Lyle as soon as I heard that Scunthorpe might want to let him go because they were bringing in other strikers.

“I must have watched footage from between 10-12 games and the more I watched the more it convinced me that he was a player I wanted to sign.”
