32-Year-Old Midfielder/Defender Burnley Premier
Matthew Taylor Contract Information:
Signed a two-year contract with Burnley in July 2014.
Taylor will need to have surgery on a nagging Achilles' tendon injury and he is expected to miss a number of weeks, manager Sean Dyche said Thursday. "Matty is unfortunately going to have a minor operation (on Monday)," Dyche said. "He's got a niggling Achilles and it hasn't settled down. It's nothing too serious in the grand scheme of things, but it's still something that is niggling - a bit of a small bony area at the back of his Achilles which is irritating it."
Dyche refused to give a timetable for Taylor's return, though it's unlikely he's brought back before he is fully fit, which is expected to take at least a few weeks, if not more.
