Burnley have already won the award for best transfer announcement this summer, they've come up with another belter

Burnley have sent the internet into meltdown after producing a must-watch transfer announcement for new signing Dara O'Shea.

The Clarets have completed the £7m signing of Republic of Ireland defender from West Brom.

O'Shea, 24, has 19 caps for his country and will join the newly promoted side on a four-year deal, keeping him at Turf Moor until 2027.

The Dublin-born defender made over one hundred appearances for the Baggies and has Premier League experience from the club's 2020/21 season in the top flight.



On signing for the club O’Shea said: “It feels great to be here and I really can’t wait to get going.

"Burnley were the outstanding team last season and they achieved exceptional things. I want to improve as a player first and foremost and I want to help the club achieve their goals."

And the club have welcomed him in impeccable style by parodying the iconic 'wazzap' scene from the 2000 film 'Scary Movie'.


When asked by character Dookie, played by Marlon Wayans, what he was doing, O'shea picks up the phone and says: "Just chillin'. I'm signing for Burnley."

Fans were quick to hail Burnley for the announcement on Twitter.

One fan wrote: "Burnley’s admin never disappoints on new signings announcements. My club."

Another added: "And the winner of the internet today goes to".


A third wrote: "Burnley deserve to start the season on +12 points just for this."

While a fourth replied: "Another sick post from Burnley lol".

It is not the first time the club have been praised for their social media antics, with the club producing a hilarious skit of Shrek to announce the signing of Lyle Foster in January.

Speaking on the signing of O'Shea, manager Vincent Kompany said: "It’s great to welcome Dara to Burnley and we know he can play a big part in the progression of our football club. Strong at the back as well as confident moving forward, a leader with experience and knowledge of playing at the highest level.


"Dara will be a great addition to our squad and we can’t wait to start working with him.”
