Burnley boss Sean Dyche is delighted with the club’s deadline day dealings after James Tarkowski arrived at Turf Moor from Brentford.
Dyche has long been an admirer of the defender, monitoring his progress since his days with Oldham Athletic at Boundary Park.
Tarkowski put pen to paper on a three-and-a-half year deal with the Clarets after making the move from Griffin Park.
“He’s a good addition to the squad and we’re really pleased to have him in the building. He’s someone that we think can add to the group.
“We were a bit light on numbers - we’ve got a few younger players and some out on loan - but he’s a good addition for the club for now and for the future.
“Firstly we’ll keep improving him because he’s young and he wants to learn. We play a different style so he’ll get used to that and adapt to it. The main thing is to keep developing him but I think he’ll bring a youthfulness and an open-mindedness.
“He’s that type of lad and he wants to do well, he wants to develop and he wants to learn. That’s what our environment and culture is about.”
Dyche added: “James is a player I have known for a couple of seasons and I’ve monitored his progress from Oldham, right the way through to now. We feel he’s an excellent signing for the club.”
