VINCENT KOMPANY has completed his first signing as Burnley boss with the arrival of midfielder Scott Twine from MK Dons.

Twine (left), 22, has put pen to paper on a four-year contract after the two clubs agreed 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 (right) said: “We are delighted to have brought Scott to the club. He’s an exciting young player that will help us in the shortterm process and in the long-term project at this 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, after joining from Swindon for an undisclose­d fee in June last year.

He said: “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 and I can’t wait to get started.”
