Burnley sign Mears from Derby

Burnley have signed Tyrone Mears from Derby County.

The Jamaican player had been an interest for manager Owen Coyle for quite some time and their efforts to land the right back have finally paid off.

The player has signed a deal for three years at the Turf Moor based club.

He's no stranger to Premiership as he was part of Derby County's woeful performance in 2007-08 where they ended season with a shocking 11 points.However, he wants to erase that part of his career and prove something with Burnley.

Manager,Owen Coyle had this to say about the acquisition :

We are delighted to get Tyrone.

He is a player with real pace and we have been looking for that in the full-back areas.

He is hungry, still relatively young and desperate to do well.
