Burnley have announced the signing of former Blackburn Rovers man Steven Reid on a one-year deal.

Burnley achieved promotion to the Premier League last season and are looking to build a team that will help them to survive the drop and consolidate their top flight status.

Reid became a free agent after leaving West Brom this summer and will add crucial Premier League experience to the Burnley squad.

“There has been other interest over the summer because I was available on a free transfer but this just felt like the right move back in the Premier League”, the 33-year-old told the club’s official site.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche is delighted with Reid’s signing and feels that his experience at the highest level will be crucial for the club next season.  


"Steven is a very strong minded professional and he has had years in the Premier League so he has that bit of experience and know-how”, said Dyche.

Reid has 185 Premier League appearances under his belt, scoring eight goals and providing 12 assists.
