Hendrick seals Burnley move


Burnley have signed Republic of Ireland international Jeff Hendrick for an undisclosed fee.

Hendrick starred for the Republic of Ireland during Euro 2016 and had been linked with a move to Hull before Burnley swooped to sign the 24-year-old.

He was given permission to leave the Republic of Ireland camp in order to return to England to undergo a medical at Turf Moor before penning a three-year deal with the Clarets.

Hendrick played 214 times for Derby but he admits the lure of the Premier League proved too big to turn down.

"The Premier League was a big draw for me and it's where I aspire to be after the summer I've had," he told the club's official website.

"Burnley did so well last year going unbeaten for five months and how much they wanted me this summer was a real positive for me.

"I know there have been a number of bids and I was sitting there waiting for one to be accepted.

"I would have preferred it to happen earlier to and get to know your team-mates and coaching staff a bit more, but I am just thankful it's done now and I can go away with Ireland known my future is settled.

"It's a little weird signing for a club and not meeting everyone for more than a week, but I am really looking forward to getting back and training with the lads."

Manager Sean Dyche commented: "After a protracted deal, we have got a main target of ours and we welcome Jeff to the club and hope he does well," Dyche said.

"He is someone who can add to our strength in midfield and he's a player who is still learning and still developing and is someone who we think we can work for us now and in the future."
