The Clarets finally got a deal for the promising Irish defender over the line earlier in the transfer window, but have failed to bring in any more fresh faces after that.
They continue to be linked with potential signings, however, and yesterday we brought you reports that Sean Dyche’s men are closing in on a deal to bring veteran Welsh goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey to Turf Moor on a free transfer to provide cover and competition between the sticks.
