Burnley continues to move smartly in the summer transfer market in the wake of their return to the Premier League under the guidance of former Manchester City icon Vincent Kompany after the Clarets reached a verbal agreement to sign highly-rated England youth international attacking midfielder Aaron Ramsey.
Pre reports from The Athletic’s David Ornstein, Burnley is edging toward completing their eleventh signing of the summer window, with both clubs working to finalize a deal worth £14m plus add-ons that will see Ramsey depart Villa Park after coming through the youth ranks since the age of nine.
Ramsey, who has already agreed to personal terms with Burnley, has been viewed as a potential star for the future by The Guardian and has already tasted success at youth level for both club and country, earning winners’ medals during the 2020-21 FA Youth Cup as well as the 2022 U19 European Championship with England.
The brother of current Villa star Jacob Ramsey and current academy attendee Cole Ramsey, Aaron has enjoyed three loan stints away from the club in the last two seasons with Cheltenham Town, Norwich City, and Middlesbrough respectively.
Burnley, having already sealed deals for Zeki Amdouni, James Trafford, Jordan Beyer, Sander Berge, Dara O’Shea, Michael Obafemi, Luca Koleosho, Lawrence Vigouroux, Nathan Redmond, and Jacob Bruun Larsen, are tooling up for a long-term stay in the top flight of English football under a manager in Kompany who has already drawn interest from some of the biggest club’s in the country.
