Gray Deal Completed

Gray Deal Completed

Striker Andy Gray is now officially a Burnley player, after completing his £750,000 transfer from Sunderland.

Gray, who initially joined the Clarets on loan, has signed a three year contract at Turf Moor, which runs until the end of the 08/09 season.

Clarets manager Steve Cotterill told the club website: ''We are delighted to finally complete the signing of Andy Gray.

'He would have been a summer target anyhow, but we were fortunate to get him on loan first and he was like a new signing to us last season.

'Having him at Turf Moor for those two months helped him to bed in ahead of next season and with the additions of Alan Mahon and, when the contract restrictions are lifted next month, Steve Jones, we are absolutely delighted at our three acquisitions.'

The transfer fee could rise by another £50,000 if the striker makes a certain number of appearances.

Gray will be looking to continue his great scoring record at Turf Moor, which has seen him net against the Clarets for Sheffield United and Bradford, as well as scoring in his first three home games in the claret and blue shirt.

Andy Gray is already a hot favourite . He is a prolific goal scorer . This is what Burnley missed after the departure of Akinbiyi . Hope that he continues to impress and in time to come be considered among the great Burnley players

If you read the article green giant, you will see that he has scored a goal in each of his 3 home games, which is a great scoring record. Got to agree though. He can only improve your side.

His partnership with Jones has the potential to be quality next season. Gray has already shown he can hold the ball up, as well as score, and with Jones' pace, they could well suit eachother.

We have to consider Kyle Lafferty in this equation also and the options for Jones playing in a 4:4:2 with Gray/Lafferty up front ot 4;5:1 with Gray alone! I would still like to see another striker brought in during close season. A Karl Hawley/Luton Shelton/Billy Sharp-type!!
