Burnley have signed centre-back Ben Gibson from Middlesbrough for 15m pounds.
25-year-old Gibson has signed a 4-year deal at Turf Moor for a joint club record fee and will compete with established pairing Ben Mee and James Tarkowski for a place in the back four.
The defender has played one season in the EPL (2016/17) and was called up to the England squad by Gareth Southgate in March 2017.
Boro were relegated, but Gibson established himself as an ever-present in the side.
He then missed only one game last season, as Boro reached the Championship play-off semi-finals.
He will now potentially play in Europe with the Clarets, who are currently undergoing Europa League qualification.
