Kevin McDonald, the 19 year old Dundee midfielder has today signed for the Clarets for £500,000 (including add ons and incentives) after Owen Coyle doubled his previous May offer. He has been given a three year contract.
The Carnoustie born Scottish Under 21 International is widely regarded in Scotland and is tipped to be a future full Scotland International. His only professional club to date has been Dundee who he joined in 2005
Dundee manager Alex Rae told the press last month that he would let McDonald leave Dens Park but only if a suitable offer was received. On the same day it was revealed that Dundee had rejected an offer of £250,000 from Burnley but the Clarets flush with money from the Lafferty deal have now doubled their offer to secure his services.
We appear to have done well to secure this deal with a number of high profile SPL and Premier League clubs rumoured to have been interested in the player in recent years
Celtic had an offer of £75,000 turned down in June 2006. Rangers were also linked and Tottenham Hotspur, Everton, West Bromwich Albion and Aston Villa have also been reportedly interested in signing the young talented Dundee star.
More recently, we faced competition from Championship rivals Plymouth and Crystal Palace and have come out on top in the battle to sign him.
