Burnley Youngster Heads To Chesterfield

Burnley Youngster Heads To Chesterfield

Burnley defender Alex Whitmore has signed a permanent contract with League Two side Chesterfield.

The 22 year old centre backs move was confirmed by Burnley yesterday and he heads to the Proact Stadium on a two and a half year deal - ending his six year stay with us.

Jack Lester's side currently sit in 22nd place in the table and he told the Official Site.

'Alex is well thought of at Burnley and we can improve him. He is dominant and aggressive, with two good feet. He is also quick and reads the game well.'

Whitmore knows League Two well following a season long loan stay out with Morecambe last season and in the first half of this campaign, he took in 11 appearances for Bury on his most recent loan spell out from the club.

'I got a call from Burnley to say there was interest and it felt right straight away. I met Jack Lester and got on really well with him and had a nice conversation with him. I knew this is where I wanted to come to and it`s nice to get it over the line.'
