Legzdins becomes the fifth summer signing at Turf Moor as the Clarets look to strengthen

Burnley signed Birmingham City goalkeeper Adam Legzdins for an undisclosed fee on Tuesday to provide cover for England worldwide Tom Heaton.

Legzdins, 30, was only third choice at Birmingham behind David Stockdale and Tomasz Kuszczak and has signed a three-year deal at Turf Moor.

Legzdins, who had a year left to run on his contract at Birmingham, said: 'Interest from someone like Burnley is something you can't ignore, no matter what the situation was at Birmingham'. I'm looking forward to working with the goalkeepers that are already here.

"I think I can add a lot of things which can help us all kick on and I'm looking forward to learning from Billy and the other two goalkeepers".

The 30-year-old is Dyche's fifth pre-season signing, joining Charlie Taylor, Jonathan Walters, Jack Cork and Phil Bardsley at Burnley ahead of their Premier League opener at champions Chelsea on Saturday.

Sean Dyche's team finished 16th in the Premier League, surviving immediate relegation after a promotion for the first time in the post-1992 era.
