Burnley reunite Anderlecht midfielder Josh Cullen with Vincent Kompany

Burnley have made their sixth summer signing, reuniting midfielder Josh Cullen with his former Anderlecht boss Vincent Kompany.

The Republic of Ireland international arrives at Turf Moor on a three-year contract, for an undisclosed fee, believed to be between €3/3.5m.

He left the Purple and Whites’ training camp in Horst in the Netherlands on Friday to travel to discuss a move to Burnley, to play under Kompany, who signed him two years ago after 15 years with West Ham.
