Burnley announce signing with incredible Teletubbies video, they are the KING of transfers
| Last updated
Burnley are back to their usual antics on transfer announcements, using a brilliant clip from much loved kids show Teletubbies for their latest signing.
For many years it felt like Burnley FC were best known for the perception of them playing 'bad' football or just from that scene in the Inbetweeners film, 'Burnley can f**k off.'
But under Vincent Kompany they have turned that reputation on the pitch around, with the former Manchester City captain having his side play some wonderful football in their promotion campaign last season.
Off the pitch they've also improved their reputation too and are now well known for some of the best transfer announcements in football.
And now they've turned to the Teletubbies to unveil the signing of Switzerland forward Zeki Amdouni from Basel, as you can see below.
The 22-year-old scored 22 goals in 52 appearances for his club last season and helped take them to the semi-final of the Europa Conference League.
He has already played for the full international team and impressed at this summer's Under 21 Euros, scoring twice in four games.
Speaking on his unveiling, Amdouni said: "I’m very happy to be here and I’m excited to start.
"The last two months were very important to me; I spoke to the coach, and he really wanted me. Also, I really wanted to work with him, for me that’s the most important. For my career, to choose a good club, where the coach wants you is important to me.
"I know the Premier League is the best league in the world. It’s not easy, for sure, but I am confident with the coach and the staff, I can do good things here."
Kompany clearly wanted the striker, saying: "He’s been on our radar for quite a while now. Zeki is such a goal threat.
"The way he can play the final pass creates so many assists and thanks to the amount of work he puts in on the pitch - he scores plenty himself.
"He’s a very intelligent footballer, technically gifted and with a great work ethic. He works really hard. We’re looking forward to working with him. He’s a big talent."
Burnley start their season at home against Premier League champions Manchester City on August 11th, which will see Kompany reunited with Pep Guardiola.
