Leeds Goalkeeper, Bailey Peacock-Farrell has joined Burnley on a four-year contract for a yet to be disclosed amount.

The Darlington born goalkeeper was rumored to be linked to The Clarets for a fee around 2.5m.

The deal is believed to be including a sell on clause for the Championship team after Burnley quickly grabbed the Goalkeeper following their successful disposal of Tol Heaton to Aston Villa for 8m.

Peacock is indeed excited that he joined the Premier League side as he said, “I’m really happy to be here. A Premier League club is what you dream of when you are starting out in football and to say I’ve signed for Burnley is a massive honour.

“There’s massive competition here, but it was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.

“The goalkeepers here are really good and two of them are England internationals. There’s something going on here that must be right.

“So to come here and be part of it, is something I’m really excited about.

“Popey and Heats came through from the Championship and established themselves here and that’s my aim as well.

“I would say it’s probably a long-term project. It was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up here.

“I’m not saying I’m coming here to replace anybody. I’m not. I’m here to learn and try and progress and be a better goalkeeper.

“I had my first session today and felt good. Hopefully I can hit the ground running and I’m looking forward to the weeks to come.”

The Northern Ireland goalkeeper has 41 appearances for the championship side and is set to provide competition for Joe Hart who just entered into final year of his contract and Nick Pope who recently extended his contract back in May with Burnley.
