Burnley manager Eddie Howe expresses his delight at signing a pre-contract agreement that will see Vancouver Whitecaps winger Dane Richards move to Turf Moor in January.

Burnley manager Eddie Howe has said that he is looking forward to adding Vancouver Whitecaps winger Dane Richards to his squad at Turf Moor.

The 28-year-old Jamaica international has signed a pre-contract agreement with the Clarets and he will join the club in January.

"We are delighted to have signed Dane, who is a player we have been tracking for a while," Howe told the club's official website. "I watched him at New York, where he played for a number of years, and he is someone who has all the attributes we are looking for to add to our squad.

"He is quick and direct, has a real turn of pace and I think he will be joining us at a good time in January, hopefully to give us a push in the second half of the season.

"He has good international experience, he is a good age and we're looking forward to adding Dane to the squad."

Richards has been capped 38 times at senior international level, scoring eight goals.
