Swans complete McBurnie signing

13th July 2015

Swansea City have completed the signing of Oliver McBurnie from Bradford City for an undisclosed fee.
The 19-year-old striker has penned a three-year deal at the Liberty Stadium and will link up with the club's Under-21 squad ahead of the new season.
The 6' 2" striker featured 20 times for Bradford's first-team during his time at Valley Parade, while he scored five goals in 14 appearances during a loan spell at Chester last season.
McBurnie also spent a period of work experience with Manchester United's Under-18 squad during the summer of 2012, scoring five goals as he helped the club win the Milk Cup.
And after firing over 50 goals in the last two season at youth level, the youngster is looking forward to a new challenge in SA1.
"I'm really excited about getting started," he said. "I've known about the interest for a little while now but it all got finalised pretty quickly and the hard work starts now.
"I'm thankful for everything that Bradford has done for me, but when a club like Swansea comes in for you then you can't say no.
"It's the perfect opportunity for me and the right time to sign. Hopefully I can have a good start for the Under-21s and continue to learn and develop during my time here.
"Swansea are now playing Category One games and they are the best fixtures in the country. You want to challenge yourself against the best players and I'm really looking forward to getting started."
