DONE DEAL: Burnley deal in Irish trialist Costelloe; release Conn-Clarke to Fleetwood

Irish teenage winger Dara Costelloe has joined the Clarets' Academy after signing a deal at Turf Moor.

Costelloe, 18, has been training with the Clarets since last summer.

And after impressing in the U18 and U23 set-ups – helping Steve Stone's side beat Newcastle United 2-0 in Premier League 2 on Monday afternoon – the former Galway United wideman has agreed a deal until June, 2022.

Limerick-born Costelloe joined League of Ireland side Galway in 2017 and made his senior debut at the age of 15.

Meanwhile, Northern Ireland youth international Chris Conn-Clarke has left the Clarets to join Fleetwood Town's Development Squad.

The third-year scholar, 19, has been training with the Cod Army and now makes the switch permanent to end a two-and-a-half-year stay at Burnley.
