Richard Eckersley has turned down Manchester United’s contract offer and signed a four-year deal at Burnley where he can join up with former team-mate Chris Eagles. The clubs are yet to agree a compensation fee which is mandatory because of Eckersley’s age.

The young full-back never had a chance of making it at Old Trafford but I hope he’ll develop into a player of Premier League quality, just as Eagles did. Good luck at Turf Moor, Richard!
