Burnley U23 coach Steve Stone pleased with new addition Anthony Gomez Mancini

Burnley U23 coach Steve Stone is delighted with their deal for Anthony Gomez Mancini.

The central midfielder arrives at Turf Moor from French top-flight club Angers on loan with a view to a possible permanent move.

Gomez Mancini is yet to break into the first team at Angers but has featured for the senior squad in pre-season games and has been capped at Under-19 level by France, playing for his country in the 2019 version of the prestigious Toulon Tournament.

And the 19-year-old is now looking to make his mark in English football, starting in the U23 set-up with the Clarets.

“We are looking to spread our network wherever it's needed to keep improving and bringing in players to help us move forward and this is what we've done with Anthony," said U23s' head coach Steve Stone.

"He's technically very good with an excellent pedigree in France.

“We're looking forward to working with him and seeing what he can bring to us."
