Carlisle to Burnley Line

The Clarets have today signed, 27-year-old defender Clarke Carlisle from Watford.

He has penned a three-year deal for a fee of £200,000. He could now make his debut at Glanford Park against Scunthorpe this Saturday sporting the new Number 5 shirt, just today vacated by Wayne Thomas.

The 6ft 3 centre-half started his career with Blackpool, before signing for QPR for £250,000 in 2000.

After three seasons, in which he contributed to QPR's promotion he joined Leeds United in summer 2004 on a free transfer.

In summer of 2005 however he joined Watford for £100,000.

Carlisle played a crucial role in Watford's promotion to the Premiership via the play-offs after the Hornets had finished in third place.

The Preston-born defender also had a loan spell at Luton last season and played against the Clarets in that awful 0-0 draw at home last March

The defender has scored over 20 career goals and is a constant threat from set-pieces. He also is a former England Under 21 International.

Welcome aboard Clarke!
