Jordan Beyer signs permanent deal with Burnley

Fresh from securing a swift Premier League return, Championship winners Burnely are wasting no time assembling a cast worthy of top-flight challenges.

According to the club’s official website, Jordan Beyer has signed a permanent four-year contract at Turf Moor following an impressive season-long loan from Borussia Monchengladbach.

Since joining the club on a temporary basis last summer, the 22-year-old defender has gone from strength to strength in the Championship, becoming one of Vincent Kompany’s most trusted allies.

Despite missing out on Burnley’s three final league fixtures during the regular season due to a foot injury, the German centre-back convinced the club to hand him a permanent deal for his phenomenal exploits throughout the 2022/23 campaign.

Of his 31 league appearances for the Clarets, only two came from the bench, highlighting Beyer’s significance to Kompany’s defensive set-up.

He was the cornerstone of the Belgian’s water-tight backline that conceded a league-low 35 goals during the regular season, cementing his first-team status from the get-go.

With the German’s place in the starting XI guaranteed since day one, Taylor Jay Harwood-Bellis and Ameen Al-Dakhil often tussled for the one remaining spot at the heart of Burnley’s defence.

After committing his future to the Lancashire outfit, Beyer refused to hide his delight in becoming part of the Claret family.

“I couldn’t be happier at the moment!” he said. “Lifting the trophy on Monday, winning the league and now set to become a Claret on a permanent basis.

“I’ve enjoyed being here since the moment I stepped into this building. It feels like home to me.

“I love playing at Turf Moor and celebrating with the fans and hopefully there is more of that to come.”

Beyer’s contract could set the tone for a busy summer transfer window as Burnley return to the Premier League after becoming only the fourth side to win 100+ points in a single Championship season.

Only three days ago, the Clarets rewarded their high-performing boss Kompany with a new deal, showing a clear ambition to retain the core member of the team that reigned supreme in the second tier this term.
