Burnley have made Antwerp attacking midfielder Manuel Benson their 10th signing of the summer.

The 25-year-old has put pen to paper over a four-year deal at Turf Moor and joins for an undisclosed fee.

Benson began his career at Lierse and also had a spell at Genk before making the move to Antwerp in 2019.

The attacking midfielder has also represented Belgium at both Under-19 and Under-21 level.

"I'm very excited. It's a new adventure for me and i have heard a lot of good things about this club," he told the club's website.

“I can't wait to start now and I'm looking forward to meeting my new team-mates."

Manager Vincent Kompany added: We’re delighted to welcome Manuel Benson to the squad.

“He’s a hard working player, that will help improve our team, as well as improve his own game in English football.

“He’s a one-v-one specialist, who is a threat in the final third. I have no doubt that he will be giving his all for the club and for his team-mates.”

Meanwhile, Matej Vydra has left the club after failing to agree a new contract, the striker announced on his Instagram account.

The 30-year-old joined the Clarets from Derby in 2018 and made 82 league appearances for the club.

Vydra’s contract expired at the end of June while he was recovering from a cruciate knee ligament injury which sidelined him for the last four matches of the season.

The forward said Burnley had only made him one offer of fresh terms, which he could not accept.

“I would like to say farewell to my amazing fans who have supported me throughout my time here in Burnley FC,” he wrote.

“I’ve been lucky to experience the family atmosphere of the club, great teammates and outstanding support from our doctors and physiotherapists that have helped me with my injury.

“I’ve done my very best to play to my fullest potential during the length of my contract, not afraid to risk getting injured even towards the end of this contract.

“That’s just who I am and I wanted to help my club at any cost. Unfortunately during a match against Watford I got seriously injured and the club got relegated to the Championship.

“Yesterday I went to see my brilliant surgeon Andy Williams, who was very pleased with my recovery. I’m ahead of the estimated recovery time and I was told I could soon be on the field again.

“Negotiations with the club were minimal - I received one offer, which I could not accept.

“To the club and to the fans, I wish a great season and the best of luck.”
