Jonathan Walters completes move to Burnley

Jonathan Walters completes move to Burnleyā€¯

Walters had been keen for added security in terms of length of contract - and hopefully more regular football under Sean Dyche.

Burnley announce that they have completed the signing of Stoke City forward Jonathan Walters on a two-year deal.

Walters, 33, has put pen to paper on a two-year deal to end his seven-year spell at Stoke and his arrival follows that of defender Charlie Taylor, who joined the Clarets from Leeds on Thursday.

With the ability to play out wide, perhaps filling the void left by George Boyd, Walters will be a key asset to a Burnley side looking to push up the table during the upcoming campaign.

Now the bulky attacker moves to Turf Moor, where he will hook up with four other Irish internationals (Stephen Ward, Kevin Long, Jeff Hendrick and Robbie Brady) as his looks to prolong his top-flight career by at least another few years.

He shot to prominence in 2007 when he joined Ipswich Town, establishing himself as a key member of their first team squad.

He has also made almost 50 global appearances for the Republic of Ireland.

He spent seven years at Stoke and made over 250 appearances. While for Ireland, he has bagged 14 goals in 49 games.
