New Burnley manager Vincent Kompany has returned to former club Manchester City to sign under-23 captain CJ Egan-Riley.

The 19-year-old defender, who has agreed a three-year deal, made Premier League, Champions League and Carabao Cup debuts last season.

He becomes Kompany’s third signing since being confirmed as Sean Dyche’s successor last month.

“CJ is a player we have been watching closely for a long time. He is a promising and talented footballer with an excellent mindset and attitude,” said the Burnley boss.

“CJ has shown a real hunger and he wants to learn and succeed at Burnley.

"He fits perfectly into our culture and he is a fantastic addition to our squad.”

Egan-Riley has represented England at every level from Under-15s to Under-19s.

He follows fellow Luke McNally and Scott Twine through the door at Burnley as Kompany assembles a squad to try to regain their Premier League status after relegation last season.

The defender added: “I’m buzzing to be here, happy the deal is over the line and I’m a Burnley player.

“I just can’t wait to get pre-season started and get the season underway.”
