Signed Friday 30.08.19
Forest Green Rovers secured the signature of midfielder Kyle Taylor from Premier League side AFC Bournemouth on a season-long loan.
Following a Carabao Cup meeting between the two teams, Cherries boss Eddie Howe expressed his admiration of the way Mark Cooper’s men play their football, and agreed a deal for the player the next day.
Taylor signed a six-year youth deal with the south coast side at the age of 12, before penning a first professional contract in 2017.
The 20-year-old’s first taste of senior football came in July 2017 when he travelled with the first team to a pre-season training camp in Marbella, making his debut from the bench in a 2-1 friendly victory over Estoril.
January 2018 brought with it a first competitive appearance, coming on as a late substitute in a 3-0 FA Cup defeat at Wigan Athletic, before Taylor penned a new deal which would see him stay in Bournemouth until 2020, the following month.
In January of this year, Taylor penned another new deal with Bournemouth which will see him remain at the club until 2022.
