Hamilton complete double swoop for Taiwo and Bloomfield
Accies have signed Tom Taiwo from Falkirk and Norwich forward Mason Boomfield on loan.
Hamilton have completed moves for former Falkirk midfielder Tom Taiwo and Norwich forward Mason Bloomfield.
Taiwo joins Accies after bringing a four-year stint with the Bairns to a close, while Canaries attacker Bloomfield arrives on a season-long loan.
Bloomfield's signing is Martin Canning's second move on the English market in recent weeks after he sealed a deal for Peterborough defender Alex Penny earlier in the month.
The 21-year-old joined Norwich in March after impressing for National League side Dagenham & Redbridge but will now head north of the border for the upcoming campaign.
Once on Chelsea's books, Taiwo will now link up with his third Scottish club after stints at Hibs and Championship outfit Falkirk.
Manager Canning told Accies TV: "Tom is a player we know well and he will add further energy and drive to our midfield.
"He's a leader and a really consistent performer and those types are hard to come by. He knows the Scottish game really well which we felt was important too.
"Mason is a great addition to our forward line; he's 6 foot 3, he's mobile and he's got a real desire to come here and score goals.''
