Burnley have completed the signing of Taylor Harwood-Bellis on a season-long loan from Manchester City.

The 20-year-old joined City at the age of eight and has made eight first-team appearances for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Harwood-Bellis played under Vincent Kompany at Anderlecht during the first half of last season and also had a spell at Stoke.

He is the Clarets’ third defensive recruit this summer following the arrivals of Luke McNally and CJ Egan-Riley.

“I’m buzzing with it. I obviously knew about it for a while, so I’m happy to get it all done - all the medical stuff done - and to get it all sorted,” said the defender.

“I feel like this will hopefully be the best season that I’ll have in the Championship with all the experience I’ve got and I’m looking forward to a good season. Hopefully it’s one with lots of success."

Harwood-Bellis has also represented England from Under-16 to Under-21 level and even captained the U21 side.

Kompany added: "I am looking forward to working with Taylor once again, and I know first-hand the qualities he will bring to the group.

"Taylor is a fantastic player and leader with a tremendous mentality that fits within our culture, and he knows exactly what the Championship is all about.

“We would like to thank Manchester City for allowing Taylor to join us on loan for the upcoming season."
