Kyle Taylor signs first pro deal

Club secretary Neil Vacher shakes hands with Kyle Taylor after signing his professional contract.

AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth midfielder Kyle Taylor has signed his first professional contract with the club.

Taylor, who was part of the under-18s' successful 2016/17 season, has penned a two year deal to move into the club's under-21s squad.

The 18-year-old, who has been part of the club's academy for eight years, impressed as the under-18s won the EFL Youth Alliance Cup - scoring a memorable solo goal against Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium.

After securing his future as a professional, Taylor said: "It's an unbelievable feeling to sign my first professional deal.

"I didn't really react when I first found out because it had to sink in.

"I wasn't emotional to start with but then I got on the phone to my dad and just broke down!

"But I'm really pleased and I'm excited for the new season."
