FORMER Swindon Town forward Scott Twine has completed a move to Championship side Burnley from Milton Keynes Dons for an undisclosed fee.

Twine only left the County Ground 12 months ago but has been in such hot form for MK he has secured a switch to Turf Moor and has become Vincent Kompany's first summer signing.

The 22-year-old - who has signed a four-year contract at Burnley - was sold to MK for £300,000 in 2021 but Town were awarded a 20 per cent sell-on fee by the independent tribunal who set his transfer fee.

While the figure that the Clarets paid for Twine has not been publicly disclosed, reports of £4 million-plus have been suggested previously - meaning Town could be set for a windfall of at least £800,000.

Burnley said on their official website: “Burnley Football Club are delighted to confirm the signing of Scott Twine on a four-year contract from MK Dons for an undisclosed fee.”

Twine was named League One player of the year last season after the Dons lost out to Wycombe in the play-off semi-finals.

Kompany said: “We are delighted to have brought Scott to the club. He’s an exciting young player that will help us in the short-term process and in the long-term project at Burnley Football Club.

“He’s a player we have looked at for a little while now, we know he can score goals and affect games. We’re glad to welcome him to the squad.”

Twine scored 20 league goals and made 13 assists last season, making 50 appearances in all competitions for the Dons.

He added: “I’m buzzing. I have definitely made the right decision joining Burnley.

“I spoke in depth with the manager and his plans are exciting. It was a no-brainer for me to sign. I can’t wait to get started and it feels like the right place for me.”
