Burnley captain Tom Heaton has completed his move to Aston Villa.

The Clarets favourite has left for a fee believed to £8 million and joins the Villa Park club on their return to the Premier League. 

Heaton’s switch brings to an end his six years at Turf Moor, a spell which saw him win two promotions and be capped three times to England.

In all, the 33-year-old made exactly 200 appearances for the club having arrived from Bristol City back in 2013.

The Clarets are set to act swiftly to bolster their goalkeeping department with a £3.5 million fee reportedly having been agreed with Leeds for Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

Boss Sean Dyche also has England internationals Nick Pope and Joe Hart at his disposal.

The former signed a new long-term contract in the summer while speculation continues over the latter, Hart having lost his place to Heaton in the second half of last season.

The former Manchester United man was promoted in his first season at Turf Moor and following the Clarets’ relegation from the top flight in 2015, captained Dyche’s men to the Championship title.

Last season, his return to the side after the 5-1 Boxing Day defeat to Everton coincided with Burnley pulling clear of safety and securing a fourth straight Premier League season.

His final appearance for the club came in the 6-1 friendly win over Nice on Tuesday night.

"It's been on the cards for a while,” Heaton told Villa’s official website.

“I wasn't quite sure if it was going to go through.

"I've spoken to the manager and it seems like a fantastic opportunity.

"He's got a real positive outlook and I was really impressed with everything he had to say.

"I was on board straight away. I didn't need any persuading."
