WINGER Chris Taylor has passed a medical and agreed a one-year deal with Millwall – and says he is joining a "big club".

NewsAtDen exclusively revealed last week that the Lions were poised to sign the 25-year-old following the expiration of his contract with League One side Oldham.

The deal has now been officially confirmed, with Taylor set to put pen-to-paper when he returns from holiday on June 15.

"It's a new start at a big club," he told the club's official site. "I'll be playing Championship football and I can't wait to get going.

"It took me the best part of a week to get my head around it [moving to London] with my girlfriend and my family, but I knew exactly what I wanted to do and that this was the place for me to come.

"At this level, you're only one step away from the dream of playing in the top division.

"The Championship is getting stronger and stronger every year and I'm glad to be a part of that. Every game is a massive game."

Latics boss Paul Dickov paid tribute to Taylor's seven years of service to the club, saying he did not begrudge the midfielder's decision to move on.

"Chris has been one of our most consistent players in my time at the club," he said.

"I would like to wish him all the best and can fully understand why he wants to play at a higher level as any player should strive to do.

"While here, Chris relished playing against higher-division opposition and I am sure he will achieve success at Millwall who like to play football the right way which will suit his game."
