Gabriel Obertan and Matthew Lowton - The Footballing World

Lowton joins Burnley

Aston Villa defender Matthew Lowton has joined Burnley, becoming the Clarets first signing since their relegation from the English Premier League to the English Championship.

The 26-year-old has left Villa Park for an undisclosed fee after agreeing a three-year deal at Turf Moor, which will help them fill the void for full-back Kieran Trippier, who left for Tottenham Hotspur last week.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche told the club’s official website: “Even back to his days at Sheffield United, I always thought Matt was a very good player and one who I think is motivated to go again.

“He has been at a big club in Aston Villa and wants to get back to the Premier League.

“The challenge for him now is to play regular first-team football and help Burnley to get back there and we look forward to welcoming him into the group.”
