Jason Taylor says he has ‘loved every minute’ of his time at Sixfields and he had no hesitation in penning a new two-year contract with the club.

Taylor signed on the dotted line on Friday following talks with manager Chris Wilder, and followed central midfield partner Joel Byrom in committing his future to the Cobblers until the summer of 2017.

“As soon as I knew Northampton wanted to keep me, and there was a contract, I was delighted and got it done pretty quickly,” said Taylor, who joined the club from Cheltenham Town in the January transfer window.

“I am just happy to be signed, and happy I have my future sorted for next season.

“I came here on a short-term deal, and have earned myself a contract so I am happy and looking forward to the final two games of the season, and then having a relaxing summer.

“I have loved every minute since I have been here, and the lads are brilliant.

“The staff have been great, and it’s all been good.

Taylor joins the bulk of the current first team matchday squad in being tied down for the next two years.

Marc Richards, Ivan Toney, Ricky Holmes, Byrom, Brendan Moloney, Ryan Cresswell and Zander Diamond are among the players on long-term deals, and Taylor said: “We are building a really good squad.

“The squad is good as it is, but with a few good additions over the summer I think we will be raring to go and kick on next season.”

Taylor returns to the Cobblers squad for Saturday’s trip to Burton Albion after missing the past two games through suspension.
