Burnley have completed the signing of Republic of Ireland midfielder Josh Cullen from Anderlecht for an undisclosed fee.

Cullen has put pen to paper over a three-year deal at Turf Moor after spending the last couple of seasons in Belgium.

The 26-year-old came through the ranks at West Ham, also having spells at Bradford, Bolton and Charlton.

He has also represented his country more than 20 times since making his debut in a 3-1 win against Bulgaria back in 2019.

“I’m really happy. It’s been something that’s been going on for a couple of weeks now, so I’m just happy it’s all done and dusted. I’m looking forward to the new season now,” Cullen told the club’s website.

“The season will come around fast now. I can’t wait to get the shirt on in some of the friendlies, and then the main event kicks off in a few weeks’ time.”

Cullen becomes Burnley’s sixth summer signing along with Scott Twine, Luke McNally, CJ Egan-Riley, Taylor Harwood-Bellis and Samuel Bastien.

Clarets chief Vincent Kompany added: “We are delighted to welcome Josh to the squad, he’s a hard-working and brave player, that will give everything for the team and the club.

“Josh is an intelligent midfielder, who is good on the ball and will help improve our side.”
