Done Deal: Burnley sign highly-rated striker for club-record fee



Burnley have signed striker Andre Gray from Brentford for a club-record fee of £9 million, BBC Sport has confirmed.

After a summer of enormous speculation following his 18 goals for the Bees last season, he has joined the recently-relegated Clarets on a three-year deal.

Sean Dyche has fought off interest from Hull City, Queens Park Rangers and Bristol City to land the 24-year-old, with the Robins also offering around £9 million for the former Shrewsbury Town man.

However, he rejected the opportunity to sign for the League One champions in favour of a move to Turf Moor.

Gray only joined Brentford last summer for £500,000 from Luton Town, after scoring 30 goals in the Conference during the 2013/14 season.

Following Burnley’s relegation from the Premier League, Gray could be the man to replace Danny Ings who left for Liverpool at the end of his contract.
