Published Add your comment

Burnley have signed striker Frederic Nimani from Ligue 1 side Monaco on an initial five-month loan.

France Under-21 international Nimani becomes new Clarets boss Brian Laws' first capture since taking over a Turf Moor.

A statement on the club's official website stated that three other top-flight teams had expressed an interest in the 21-year-old, who subsequently opted for Burnley.

The club also said the loan deal was agreed "with a view to a possible permanent move".

Nimani has played eight times for Monaco this season, scoring once.
