OFFICIAL: Burnley sign former Chelsea defender Nartey

Former Chelsea defender Richard Nartey has joined Burnley following a successful trial spell at Turf Moor. 

Nartey was released by Chelsea in the summer and has been a regular for Burnley's U23 side this season. The defender who made 29 appearances for League One side Burton Albion last season has now signed a contract with Burnley. 

"It’s a relief. After the whole Covid situation I was just happy getting back into the swing of it," he told the club's official website.

"Burnley let me come originally, just to get fit, which I was always grateful for, regardless. Now I’ve signed here is a great feeling for me."

"Everyone here made me feel like I had been here for years. I felt comfortable settling down and they have been a huge help in making me feel comfortable up here."

"You reach an age at Chelsea where you want to breakthrough. The loan last year helped me a lot but coming here with that family feeling I feel like I have a direction of where I’m going and progression. I think it’s a new chapter in my life."
