Burnley winger Dwight McNeil has completed a move to Everton for an undisclosed fee.

McNeil came through the Clarets’ youth ranks after a spell at Manchester United and made his senior debut in 2018.

The 22-year-old went on to make 134 Premier League appearances, scoring seven goals and getting 17 assists.

He also represented the club in the Europa League qualifiers, featuring in the home leg against Greek giants Olympiacos.

McNeil has put pen to paper over a five-year deal with the Merseyside club, who narrowly avoided relegation last season under Frank Lampard.

“It is an amazing feeling to sign. When I heard about Everton’s interest I wanted to get it done straight away because of the club and how good the team is,” he told the club’s website.

“Speaking to the manager about what they want going forward, it really excited me and appealed to me. I wanted to be part of it.

“He knows me as a player, as does [director of football] Kevin Thelwell. I want to work hard and do well for the team and for the fans.

“I feel playing under a manager like Frank Lampard, he will help me to get my stats up – and that is what I want to do and improve my game.

“I am a direct runner with the ball. I like to get on the ball, cut inside and create chances for the team. I want to help the team as best as I can, work hard and do the defensive side of the game, too.”

Ben Mee, James Tarkowski, Nick Pope and Nathan Collins are also among the names who have left Turf Moor this summer following the Clarets’ relegation from the top-flight.

Vincent Kompany’s side kick off their Championship campaign with a trip to Huddersfield tomorrow night (KO 8pm).
