Ade,Ade,Ade-A DEal!

Ade is back giving the fans the Best possible news that the Club is at long last 'walking the talk'. Its almost a year since we said goodbye to Ade as he left for the Blades in a club record £1.75m outgoing transfer deal.This sale proved to be a disaster for the club as we plummeted down the division.

Could we now reverse our fortunes and recent poor form and continue to press for a play-off place?

The Sheffield United striker re-signed in a two-and-a half year deal, less than 12 months after leaving Turf Moor for Bramall Lane

Burnley have paid out £650,000 for the 32-year-old striker with a further £100,000 payable in the summer.

Ade officially signed on January 1st, but is not eligible for the New Year's Day game versus Stoke City.

The Claret faithful worshipped Ade in his first spell with the Club and he scored 16 Championship goals in just 38 starts. Who can forget that fantastic Hat-trick he got at Luton last season?

Ade never really settled with Sheffield United and he started just 12 games for them and made a total of 18 appearances.

Burnley manager Steve Cotterill comments on the Official Site

'I'm absolutely delighted to bring Ade back as I'm sure the supporters and his team mates will be, both those that he left behind and the new ones he will meet.

'He is a great character. He will need time to settle in though because he hasn't played too much regular football in the last 12 months.

'To be honest everybody knew what I thought of Ade in his previous spell here and I just thought when we were looking around for what was available, both in terms of money and the player, he was the best, but we'll need to make sure we give him time to get up to speed.

'I would imagine, all in all, that this is just the kind of lift we needed at this moment in time - probably for Ade as well.

'We are just looking forward to welcoming him back in the squad. He won't be doing any press over the next week or so.

'We just need to let him settle back into the club that loves him and I'm sure then he will then have plenty to say in the next week or two.'

There will be many happy Clarets this morning. Welcome back Ade!!

No chance he'll be as good this time around I'm afraid!

Dont know on what basis you can come to that conclusion. Ade is adored by manager and fans alike and we know how to get the best out of him

Ade is a big striker who can cause defensive line ups all sorts of problems. He may not have started too many games for Sheff Utd in the premiership, but I'm confident he'll be a positive influence for the rest of the team in terms of confidence to play the game like we have seen them play earlier in the season. To get him back for £750k after selling him for £1.75m is a stroke of genius, all we need now is for Ade to perform like we know he can. It will be an interesting prospect for when Andy Gray comes back after injury - with those two up front, I'm sure we can climb places in the league!

Good bit of business for you. Just pleased we've played you twice already (Hull). you could be lethal when Andy Gray is fit again. Good luck for the rest of the season
