'The Welsh Cafu...absolutely robbed Swansea' - fans' brilliant reaction to Burnley's signing of Connor Roberts
Burnley have signed defender Connor Roberts from Swansea City
Burnley have finally complated the signing of Connor Roberts from Swansea City – and there has been a huge reaction on social media.
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…
@CallumSeth7: phenomenal value for someones who scored in the Euros from RB that. great deal in a position we needed to strengthen
