Czech Mate As Hydra Makes It A Hat-Trick

The Clarets have completed a third signing of the summer transfer window with the capture of striker Matej Vydra from Derby County. 

 The Czech international has signed a three-year-deal, with a further 12-month option, and follows Ben Gibson and Joe Hart in arriving at Turf Moor ahead of Thursday’s deadline.

 Vydra, who joins for an undisclosed fee, gets the chance to return to the Premier League after brief spells in the top tier with Watford and previously at West Bromwich Albion while on loan from Italian Serie A club Udinese in 2012/13.

 And this time the 26-year-old, who has been a prolific scorer at Championship level, feels fully equipped to take on the challenge with the Clarets.

 “I think five years ago I was like a kid in the Premier League. Now I feel I have more experience in English football, I speak better English and I have learned more in England, so I hope I’m a better player than five years ago,” Vydra told the Clarets’ website.

Welcome Matej Vydra, I work with a Czech company so could be a good sign.

The opposition will up their game against us this coming season but these signings will hopefully maintain the hard worked for status quo. Well done the board and well done SD.

Just hope Dyche as brought him in to play as a proper #10 rather than a workhorse.

Sounds like a character from the Avengers movies. Still need another midfielder to replace Marnfield
