James Trafford has joined Burnley from Manchester City in a deal reportedly worth £19million.

It sees the 20-year-old become the third most expensive English goalkeeper ever behind Jordan Pickford and Aaron Ramsdale.

Trafford went from strength to strength during a couple of loan spells at Wanderers over the past 18 months, helping Ian Evatt’s men finish fifth in League One.

He also kept a clean sheet as the Whites beat Plymouth 4-0 to life the EFL Trophy at Wembley in front of nearly 80,000 supporters.

The young shot stopper made the headlines at the recent European Under-21 Championships, making a heroic double save at the death as England beat Spain in the final. He went the whole tournament without conceding a goal.

Trafford has now joined the Clarets as Vincent Kompany’s side prepare for life back in the Premier League, having clinched the Championship title last term.

“I feel very happy to officially be a Burnley player,” he told the club website.

“I was excited for it to all get done whilst the Euros was going on. I knew a lot about it and I was waiting to get back to make it all official really.

“I want to improve and learn as much as I can here and as a team, I just want to take it a day at a time and try and achieve as much as we can going forward.”

Trafford could come up against his former club when Burnley kick-off the new season against City at Turf Moor on Friday, August 11.

"We’ve signed an extremely talented young man,” Kompany added. “More than just a talent he’s a great character.

"James is a very impressive, confident mature young man. Most people have seen what he’s achieved in his career so far and his level of talent.

"We’re looking forward to developing that even further. Making him even better. He’s done so much all ready and what excites us is how far he can go.”
