Burnley have announced the signing of defender Stephen Ward from Wolves on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

The experienced 28-year-old Republic of Ireland international is Burnley’s seventh signing of the summer and is delighted to have joined the Premier League new boys.

“I’m absolutely thrilled,” said Ward. “I’ve had eight years at Wolves now and I was on loan at Brighton last year but to start a new chapter in my career is great.

“I don’t think I could have picked a better place than Turf Moor and, obviously, to come to the Premier League is a massive pull as well.

“Once you get a taste of it, you want to play as much Premier League football as you can.

“Burnley have done superbly well to get promoted and hopefully I can play some part in us having a successful year.

“It’s a hungry squad that wants to stay in the Premier League for many years to come.”

The versatile Ward usually lines up at full-back and made over 200 appearances during his time at Wolves.

He has 24 Republic of Ireland caps and played in all of their matches at Euro 2012.
