Brian Easton becomes 4th Summer Signing

Brian Easton becomes 4th Summer Signing

As expected following widespread media speculation, Burnley have completed the signing of defender Brian Easton from Hamilton for £350,000 plus incentives.

The Scotland Under-21 international has agreed a three-year deal and becomes our 4th new signing of the Summer.

He will not play in tonight's friendly against Morecambe at Christie Park but looks likely to join the Clarets on tour to the US when they fly out to California this Thursday.

There will be a press conference with the player tomorrow afternoon (Wednesday 15th July)

The 21 year old will wear shirt number 24 for the Clarets in our first season in the Premier League.

Welcome aboard, Brian

So three defenders and one striker bought so far, on the assumption we need to strengthen in all departments for the Prem according to Coyle what chance the next signing will be in midfield?

I would still like to see an experienced man come in to the club.

I think he could turn out to be a great signing like his agent said he is a 6ft+ left footed left-back not many of them about,he already has a 100+ games under his belt which is no mean feat at 21 good stuff :-)

Young, tall, quick, and as said above, a left-back. Sounds good to me. Remember, Dale, "You won't win anything with kids!" ;) I think we are investing for the future - how much will we have spent so far? £3.5 for SF, £500k-ish for DE, £500k for TM and now £500k max for BE - that's "only" £5 million spent - I'd like to think we have double that left in the war chest. Let's get Mills from Donny, Driver from Hearts and Wellbeck (loan) from Man U for starters! Then, I'd quite like a keeper, and a central midfielder!

Yeah I know what you are saying Barnsey - and normally i am delighted to sign youngsters and look forward to seeing them develop. I just have a concern that we wont have enough experienced heads in there when we need it! Not sure about Mills, figures being quoted seem a bit excessive.

Agree with getting Driver and I think the Tudgay saga might not yet be over and thats where the experience might come from! Tudgay can play in many midfield places inc wing as well as upfront so could be a good catch. He clearly wants talks here as well
