Swansea City midfielder Jack Cork has joined fellow Premier League club Burnley for an undisclosed fee.

The midfielder passed a medical today and will leave the Liberty after spending the last two-and-a-half years in South West Wales.

Cork arrived at the Swans from Southampton in January 2015, and went on to make 83 appearances – scoring twice – during his time with the club.

He helped the Swans to a record Premier League points total in 2014-15, and wore the captain’s armband on a number of occasions in 2016-17.

The former Chelsea youngster, who turned 28 last month, returns to Burnley having enjoyed two successful loan spells with the Clarets earlier in his career.

Everyone at Swansea City would like to thank Jack for his service to the club, and wish him well in his career.
