Burnley transfer news: Clarets set to swoop for bargain full-back deal, Norwich City to battle for 58-cap international ace
Burnley are set for a busy few weeks ahead of the new Premier League season, as they look to recruit some quality new additions for the 2021/22 campaign.
Last week, the Clarets completed the signing of defender Nathan Collins from Stoke City. Upon sealing his switch to Turf Moor, the 20-year-old said:
“Everything about it (the club) is top drawer. It’s massive. It’s what I want to do. I want to play in the Premier League. It’s going to be a jump but I think I can be ready for it.
“Every season they go into it, Burnley look dangerous. They can always hurt teams and it’s a really attractive team to come and play for.
“I want a challenge. That’s why I play football – to challenge myself and I can’t wait to get going. I want to play big games, I want to play against these players – I really can’t wait.
“Looking at Burnley, looking at what they’ve done in the last few seasons and what they want for the future; everything played a part. I think they do have big expectations at this club and I want to be part of it.”
“Even watching them last season, they are really good, the way they talk to each other and the way they play. I think they have really big roles in this team and is something to look up to.
