Burnley sign Aaron Ramsey from Aston Villa


Burnley have signed midfielder Aaron Ramsey from Aston Villa for a fee in excess of £12m.

Ramsey, 20, has agreed a five-year contract at Turf Moor and becomes manager Vincent Kompany’s 13th summer signing.

“I have been waiting to be a Burnley player for a while and I can’t wait to get started,” Ramsey said.

The Clarets have also wrapped up the signing of Belgium defender Hannes Delcroix from Anderlecht.

England Under-20 international Ramsey, the younger brother of Villa midfielder Jacob, spent 12 years at Villa Park having come through the youth ranks.

He made four senior appearances for the club and had loan spells at Cheltenham, Norwich and Middlesbrough between 2021 and 2023.

Ramsey was part of the England squad which won the European Under-19 Championship last year, and scored in the 3-1 win over Israel in the final.

He added: “When you come to a new club you want the lads to welcome you in and everyone here has done that straight away. It’s been really easy to settle, everyone has been amazing.”

Delcroix, 24, has moved to Burnley for an undisclosed fee after signing a three-year contract and is reunited with Kompany, who managed Anderlecht for two years from 2020.

“It’s a great team. It was not difficult to come here when I got the option,” Delcroix said.

“It’s a different competition, the Premier League. Everybody knows it. It’s the best competition in the world at the moment. I am happy to be here.”

Delcroix represented Belgium at youth level and won his only senior cap in a friendly against Switzerland in 2020.
