Former Clarets striker Gifton Noel-Williams, 28, will end a two-year spell in Spain to join Azerbaijan outfit Neftchi Baku according to various reports in the press this morning.

The former Watford and Stoke City player joined Burnley on a free transfer in June 2005 during Steve Cotterill's reign.

He played 56 times for the Clarets scoring just 7 goals. He did however score his first ever professional hat-trick in Burnley's 4-2 home victory over Barnsley in a most memorable night match during his time at Turf Moor.

Noel-Williams joined Real Murcia for a fee of around 50,000 in January 2007, signing an 18-month deal. Following Real Murcia's promotion to La Liga Noel-Williams was transferred to Spanish side, Elche CF
