Re: ARTICLE: Egan-Riley arrives from Manchester City

Burnley announced this as a four year deal this morning, they’ve now changed it to three years. You would hope the club might have got that right.

I’ll go and change it now on here.

A few hundred grand but I suspect City will have done what they did with Kieran Trippier & Ben Mee, allowed a low figure but with a huge sell on percentage.
