Burnley FC transfer news: Wolves open talks with Clarets defender, Premier League scouts watch Blackburn Rovers striker
Here is the latest from today’s Championship transfer news.
Burnley confirmed they had handed two of their academy stars their first professional contracts yesterday.
Finlay Armstrong and Joe McGlynn have signed one-year deals with the Clarets after spending around ten years at Turf Moor.
Armstrong joined the club as an Under 13 and was a key player for Mike Jackson’s Under 23 side last season.
The 19-year-old has spoken on his new contract, saying: “I’m buzzing to have signed my first professional contract at Burnley.
“I have been at the club since I was 12 and have developed in that time, both as a player and a person.
“I’m happy to get it done and just looking forward to the season starting again now.”
Meanwhile, Scotland youth international McGlynn has signed a deal after frequently being involved in first team training last season.
McGlynn said: “It’s a proud moment for me and for my family.
“I’ve been here for nine years now, and with the new manager coming in bringing excitement around the place, it was a no brainer for me to stay.”
