Vincent Kompany makes Scott Twine his first signing as Burnley boss

Vincent Kompany completed his first signing as Burnley boss with the arrival of midfielder Scott Twine from MK Dons.

Twine, 22, put pen to paper on a four-year deal after the two clubs agreed an undisclosed fee.

Burnley said on their official website: “Burnley Football Club are delighted to confirm the signing of Scott Twine on a four-year contract with MK Dons for an undisclosed fee.”

Twine was named League One Player of the Year last season after the Dons lost to Wycombe in the play-off semi-final.

Kompany said: “We are delighted to have brought Scott to the club. He is an exciting young player who will help us in the short term process and in the long term project at Burnley Football Club.

“He’s a player we’ve been watching for a little while now, we know he can score goals and influence games. We’re happy to welcome him to the team.

Twine scored 20 league goals and 13 assists last season, making 50 appearances in all competitions for the Dons after joining Swindon for an undisclosed fee in June last year.

He added: “I’m buzzing. I definitely made the right decision joining Burnley.

“I spoke in depth with the manager and his plans are exciting. It was a no-brainer for me to sign. I can’t wait to get started and feel like this is the right place for me.

Burnley, keen to bounce back straight to the Premier League after relegation, appointed Kompany as Sean Dyche’s permanent replacement earlier this month.
