Fletcher speaking to the Official Site about the move said:
"I am absolutely delighted to sign for the club. It is a great feeling to be here and I am just looking forward to getting the season started now.As soon as I heard that Burnley were after me, and knowing Owen Coyle as I do from my time in Scotland, I thought this was the right place to come and develop my career.The opportunity came long in January for me to join Celtic, but Hibs did not think it was the right time to move on.When the chance arrived to come to the Premier League and play for a club like Burley, I was glad they accepted that and let me come down.I have wanted to come to England for a while now to show people what I can do and I am so looking forward to it.I want to give 100 per cent and score goals and hopefully I can do that."
