A Hull of a move for Scott Twine
Scott Twine is the latest player to move out of Burnley on loan and will now spend the 2023/24 season back in the Championship with Hull City.
Twine was Vincent Kompany’s second Burnley signing but injury blighted the first half of his first season at Burnley. He came on as a substitute in the opening game at Huddersfield, and came close to scoring his first Burnley goal with a free kick that hit the post.
We didn’t see him again until he came on as a substitute in the 3-0 win at QPR in December and in January he scored his first Burnley goal, netting the winner against West Brom at home with a superbly taken free kick.
His first start came in the FA Cup tie at Ipswich and he lined up at the start of a league game for the first time at Millwall. Two more FA Cup starts followed along with four more in the league although those four all came after we’d clinched promotion.
It always looked likely that we’d look to get him a loan deal this season and he’ll now join Hull, a club who were keen to sign him last summer before he opting to join us.
Twine was seen arriving to watch our season opener against Manchester City last Friday night but is now expected to make his debut for Hull just a few miles down the road at Blackburn.
Hull boss Liam Rosenior said of the signing: “I’m absolutely delighted that Scott has joined us. We’ve beaten off competition from many top clubs in the Championship to secure his signature, based on our identity and style of play. This signing shows the ambition we have and that we want the best players we can get. He’s someone we’ve waited for but he’s worth the wait.
“He’s the perfect type of player I want in my team because he completely fits our philosophy. What I love about Scott is his ability to finish actions – to take shots, convert chances and he’s deadly from set-plays. His personality will completely fit into the group. He’s fantastic technically, can take the ball between lines, has got amazing movement, makes intelligent runs, presses well and likes to link and combine with other players. Scott can play in multiple positions and most importantly, he has end product, an area we identified as one we needed to improve on for this season.”
We wish him the very best during his season at Hull.Follow UpTheClarets:
