Burnley snap up Gudmundsson


Burnley have completed the signing of Johann Berg Gudmundsson from Charlton.

The Iceland international has spent two years with Charlton but he has agreed a three-year deal with the option of another further 12 months.

The 25-year-old midfielder started every game for Iceland during their run to the quarter-finals at Euro 2016 and Burnley manager Sean Dyche believes he will be a success in the Premier League.

"Johann, we feel, is a quality player who we saw last season playing at Charlton in a tough time and we liked the quality he showed," Dyche said.

"It helps to see a player in the European Championships with that kind of company and he did well there so it was one we all agreed would be a good acquisition for the club and we look forward to working with him going forward."

Commenting on his move, Gudmundsson said: "It's fantastic to be here, it's a club that's shown a lot of interest in me and I'm really happy to come and play for Burnley.

"It was a good season for myself, unfortunately not for Charlton, and then we had a good Euros for Iceland.

"It feels like a family club and like everyone is tight to each other. The atmosphere around the club is fantastic and playing against the team last season I saw just how good the club was - I definitely wanted to join."
