Central defender Ben Gibson is first signing of the summer

 Burnley Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of defender Ben Gibson from Middlesbrough.

 Gibson has agreed a four-year-deal at Turf Moor after Burnley paid a joint club record fee for the centre-back, who becomes Burnley’s first signing of the summer transfer window.

 The deal sees Gibson, 25, return to the Premier League after playing the 2016/17 season in the top-flight with Middlesbrough.

 The previous season, the former England under-21 international had helped Boro win promotion from the Championship behind title-winners Burnley.

 Teesside-born Gibson – nephew of Boro chairman Steve – came through the youth ranks at the Riverside Stadium and made his senior debut as a substitute in a Championship fixture in April, 2011.
