Burnley have announced the double signing of the striker Marvin Sordell from Bolton and the former West Ham midfielder Matt Taylor.
Sordell has made his switch for an undisclosed fee, the 23-year-old agreeing a deal that could keep him at Turf Moor until 2017. He spent last season on loan from Bolton at Charlton, for whom he scored eight goals, and has been capped 14 times for England Under-21s. Sordell previously worked under the Burnley manager Sean Dyche at Watford, the club with whom he made his Football League debut.
Taylor, 32, has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the Clarets after his West Ham contract came to an end this summer. He is another ex-Bolton player.
Sordell and Taylor are the second and third arrivals this week for Burnley after they announced on Wednesday that the former Blackpool goalkeeper Matt Gilks had joined them. Michael Kightly, who had been on loan at Turf Moor from Stoke last season, has also made his move permanent.
