Burnley ink 2-year pact with midfielder Stephens of Brighton
LONDON (UK) – Burnley have roped in midfielder Dale Stephens from Brighton and Hove Albion on a two-year contract, the Premier League clubs said on Friday.
Stephens, 31, has made 223 appearances on the turf wearing the jersey of Brighton after arriving from Charlton Athletic in 2014. He helped the side win promotion to the Premier League in 2017.
“I’m very happy. It’s probably taken a few more years than expected but I’m happy to get it over the line this week and finally become a Burnley player,” Stephens said.
“I’m coming back to a Premier League club that’s done well in recent years in this league and I’m excited for that challenge.”
Burnley will play Southampton on Saturday.
