Burnley complete George Porter signing

Burnley have completed the signing of 20-year-old right winger George Porter.

The Clarets make Porter their second signing of the summer, following on from Mansfield Town right-back Luke O’Neill, although a fee is yet to be agreed for the young flanker.

He is out of contract so has been able to complete a move to Turf Moor on a three-year deal, but a fee will be paid once the clubs come to an agreement.

Porter played 38 times for Orient last season, though many of his appearances were from the bench. He scored two goals.

Speaking to the official Burnley Football Club website, manager Eddie Howe was pleased to have got his man, with other clubs linked to Porter’s signature in recent weeks.

He said: “We believe George is an exciting young player with the potential to develop further with us.

“He will increase competition in the wide areas in our squad but is also one for the future.

“He has had a taste of league football and we will now be working with him to help him make the step up to the Championship and make a big impact here at Turf Moor.”

We’ll have more on Porter later today from a Leyton Orient fan.

Meanwhile, local press reports suggest Burnley could be closing in on Derby defender Jason Shackell whilst Clarets youth forward Joe McKee is joining Bolton.

What do you make of the signing? Comment below.

  1. Not the most exciting signing in the world, but sounds promising enough. Can’t complain.
