DONE DEAL: Stephens 'very happy' after joining Burnley from Brighton

Dale Stephens has joined Burnley from Brighton for an undisclosed fee.

The 31-year-old midfielder has signed a two-year deal with the Clarets after spending the last six years with Brighton.

He told the Burnley website: "I'm very happy. It's probably taken a few more years than expected but I'm happy to get it over the line this week and finally become a Burnley player.

"I've been away from the North-West for a while. It's nice to come back to where the family resides as well.

"But most importantly I'm coming back to a Premier League football club that's done well in recent years in this league and I'm excited for that challenge."
