Daniel Ballard closes in on Burnley transfer 0

Posted on June 23, 2022 by Veselin Trajkovic

Burnley are close to completing a deal to sign Daniel Ballard from Arsenal on a permanent transfer, according to James McNicholas of The Athletic.

The 22-year-old centre-back has had loan spells with Swindon Town, Blackpool and Millwall, but even though his quality has sufficed to earn him 15 senior caps with Northern Ireland, he has never played for the first team at Arsenal.

The move to Burnley obviously seems like a fine choice from the youngster’s perspective at this point, with the Clarets’ reputation for turning out powerful central defenders in mind, but also the fact that they’ve just appointed one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League over the last decade in former Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany as their manager.
