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!
