Chris Iwelumo leaves Burnley FC

Burnley Football Club can confirm that Chris Iwelumo has left Turf Moor to join Championship rivals Watford.

The striker, 32, has signed for the Hornets on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Iwelumo leaves Turf Moor after 12 months as a Burnley player following his signing from Wolverhampton Wanderers last summer.

The Scotland international scored 11 League goals for the Clarets, including a memorable hat-trick in Burnley’s dramatic 4-3 derby win over Preston North End last September.

Iwelumo also scored twice against Watford with his only goal away from home for the Clarets coming in a 3-1 win at Vicarage Road in mid-February as Burnley completed the double over the ‘Golden Boys’.

Everyone at Burnley Football Club would like to take this opportunity to thank Chris for his efforts and wish him well in his future career.
