Defender, Reid signs for Burnley

07 July 2014, 17:03

London - Former Republic of Ireland international defender, Steven Reid has signed a one-year deal with Premier League newcomers Burnley.

Reid, 33, was a free agent after being released by West Brom at the end of last season.

He becomes the Clarets' fifth signing since they secured promotion following the arrivals of Michael Kightly, Matt Gilks, Marvin Sordell and Matt Taylor at Turf Moor.

"Steven is a very strong-minded professional and he has had years in the Premier League so he has that bit of experience and know-how," manager Sean Dyche told the club's website.

"I know him personally from his younger days at Millwall and he was a very solid pro then and he still is now, perhaps a more rounded version of what he was then.

"Along with Matty Taylor we want that experience in the building as well as the vibrancy in the team.

"Both of those players played in some really awkward games for West Brom and West Ham respectively and hopefully that experience can rub off on others."

Reid began his professional career with Millwall before moving to Burnley's east Lancashire rivals Blackburn in 2003.

He spent seven years at Ewood Park but had brief loan spells at QPR and West Brom before making a permanent move to The Hawthorns in 2010.
