The 18-year-old, who played in several pre-season friendlies while on trial at Turf Moor this summer, will join the Clarets' development squad.

Burnley's development squad manager Simon Weatherstone is looking forward to working with the promising youngster.

He said: "Kyle has done really well in pre-season and showed his quality. He is an attacking left-back who can put in a great delivery when he gets in to the final third and I know he was highly thought of at Stockport.

"He has trained with the first team alongside the rest of the development squad and was impressive.

"Stockport seems to be a good breeding ground for young talent at present.

"Danny Whitehead departed for West Ham earlier in the summer and now Kyle has signed terms here.

"Hopefully he can progress into the first team in years to come."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
