Luke McNally: Burnley sign Oxford United defender for reported £1.6m

Championship side Burnley have signed defender Luke McNally from Oxford United on a four-year deal.

The 22-year-old was brought to Turf Moor for a reported fee of £1.6m, BBC Radio Oxford understands, after 18 months with the League One side.

Former Republic of Ireland Under-21 centre-back McNally played 35 games for the U's, following a move from League of Ireland side St Patrick's.

"It's all happened so quick," McNally told the club website.

"I just can't wait to start now and I'm really excited."

McNally is the second player brought to the club since new boss Vincent Kompany was appointed, along with free-scoring forward Scott Twine from MK Dons.
