Dale Stephens joins Burnley

USM are happy to confirm client Dale Stephens has signed a two-year deal with Burnley from Brighton.

The midfielder has been at Brighton for the past six-years, making 223 appearances.

He commented: “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”

Burnley have long been interested in Stephens, who added: ‘I’m probably a better player now than when Burnley tried to sign me initially, with the experience I’ve had over the last three years.
