Official-Treacy a Claret!

Official-Treacy a Claret!

Winger, Keith Treacy has today completed his move from Preston to Burnley after finalising personal terms today and undergoing a medical on Monday.

The Republic of Ireland international has agreed a three-year-deal for an undisclosed fee.

It is thought a fee of between £750,000 and £800,000 though could be involved although some of that will go to Blackburn Rovers due to a sell-on clause.

Intresting question which Clarets have also played for both Preston AND Blackburn as well and who was the last to do so?

I don't know the answers by the way!!

The 22 year old will wear the Number 26 shirt!

Barry Fry is such a gob S**te just imaging leaking this to the press how will Ross Wallice be feeling right now .............".But Posh are in no mood to sell their talisman and turned down a player plus cash deal, which was said to involve Clarets wide man Ross Wallace going the other way.

Good signing a bit late for Saturday but still might get to see him as a sub. As for Fry this bloke is a complete arse wipe and would not deal with him again, hollins i would have thought Wallice would have been told what the plans were regarding his future, saying that i would of like to have seen Boyd here.

Sorry Wallace.

Vital Ipswich editor here. I think you've got a gem in this lad - we were being linked with him earlier in the summer and I can't for the life of me figure out why we never put an offer in for him. With Treacy and Charlie Austin I fear we might be seeing what we could have had at Portman Road!

But Darren, you got Jay E-T and we wanted him! Some Clarets also wanted Paul Jewell. But not me, I would add.

Welcome aboard Treacy, let's see what he can do.

A fee around £750,000 and £800,000 seems to be good business for us if this guy is as good all the time as he was against us last year. I wonder what we were offering before Eagles went? Wonder who is first choice wideman now with Wade, Wallace and Treacy? One more high quality striker please!!!

I do hope that there's no truth in what Barry Fry aid that we'd offered Wallace + cash in exchange for Boyd. Although the club have rubbished it, it seems a strange thing for someone to make up. I thought Wallace was a waste of space for most of last season but it seems he has had the bit between his teeth a bit more pre season and it would be good to see him come good. I'm sure he's got to be better than what we've seen so far.
