Clarets capture Eckersley
Burnley have completed the signing of Manchester United youngster Richard Eckersley. The full-back has inked a four-year deal at Turf Moor after turning down a new deal at United. As he is under 24, Burnley will have to agree a compensation package with United for the 20-year-old. Eckersley came through the ranks at Old Trafford and he was tipped for a big future at the club. However, Clarets boss Owen Coyle has managed to persuade him to turn his back on United and move to the Premier League new boys. Eckersley is Burnley's fifth new signing of the summer following the arrivals of Tyrone Mears, Steven Fletcher, David Edgar and Brian Easton.
