Published Add your comment

Burnley have agreed a deal for Cork City's teenage defender Kevin Long.

The 19-year-old will arrive at Turf Moor permanently in January after signing a three-and-a-half year deal with the Barclays Premier League club shelling out a six-figure fee.

"He is a young, aggressive and quick left-sided centre-back who is hungry to keep improving and will go straight into our first-team squad when he joins us," said Burnley manager Owen Coyle.
