Burnley have finally complated the signing of Connor Roberts from Swansea City – and there has been a huge reaction on social media.

The deal comes after the signing of Maxwell Cornet from Lyon as Burnley strengthen their squad before the transfer deadline – and there could be more deals still to happen.

The Clarets got Roberts for a cut-price £2.5million after the player decided to leave the Championship club after Sean Dyche revived his interest in the Welshman.

Highly-rated Roberts, who starred as right wing-back for Wales in Euro 2020, only had a year left on his contract.

Even so, it looks like a steal for the 25-year-old, and fans of both clubs were quick to take to Twitter to comment on the transfer.

Here’s a pick of some of the comments:

@jaswinburne1: Phenomenal signing this. Love Lowton & Bardsley but been saying for ages we need someone who is the right side of 30 and he really is that

@WillLankyMedia: Superb signing! Over the moon with that. Just a midfielder in now…
