Former Ipswich Town and Peterborough striker Paul Taylor has agreed a deal to join League Two Stevenage, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Taylor is a free agent after leaving League One Doncaster Rovers last January.

 

A number of Football League clubs have shown an interest in Taylor this summer, but Stevenage have moved to agree a deal with the 31-year-old.

Stevenage boss Dino Maamria believes Taylor's experience and goal-scoring will make him a valuable addition to his plans for the new season.

Taylor has enjoyed a nomadic career having started at Everton as well as having spells at Liverpool and Manchester City as a youth player.

Taylor has also spent time with Ipswich, Rotherham and Blackburn, as well as stints in Belgium with Charleroi and Anderlecht.

Taylor will help bolster Stevenage's firepower as they look to mount a bid for promotion this season after missing out on a play-off place by a solitary point last time out.
