Bedeau makes permanent Morecambe move
Central defender Jacob Bedeau has today signed for League One club Morecambe for an undisclosed fee and departed Turf Moor after just over a year with the Clarets.
Bedeau moved to Burnley from Scunthorpe on 1st July last year, signing a two-year deal with the option of a third year. He’d started his career at Bury, for whom he made seven league appearances, before moving to Aston Villa in a £900,000 transfer in January 2017.
Released by Villa two years later without having made the first team, he moved to Scunthorpe where he added a further 45 league games before signing for us.
He immediately became a regular player in the under-23 team, impressing at the back, and in January this year went out on loan to Morecambe for whom he played 22 games in the league having made his debut in an FA Cup tie at Spurs.
He was signed by Stephen Robinson but was very much a first choice from February when former Claret Derek Adams returned as manager, and Adams has now taken the 22-year-old back to Morecambe where he has signed a two-year deal.
Having completed the move, Bedeau said: “I am buzzing to get it all sorted, I can’t wait to get going now and have two full seasons instead of just half a season which I had when I was on loan. The move has been in the pipeline for a few weeks, once my agent told me that Morecambe were interested again, I was really excited to come back as I really enjoyed my time here first time around. The fans were unreal, they helped in keeping us up last season and now it is a case of building on that and making sure that we consolidate our place in League One again.
“I know a lot of the boys from last year which is always nice, the manager came in after I did last season and was really good with me, so it was a very easy decision for me to come back. It ended on a real high note for the club last year, we did really well to stay up, the fans, the players and everyone at the club all managed to pull in one direction, which is what it is all about. The job now is to push on and establishing the Club as a League One side, and I want to play a part in that.”Follow UpTheClarets:
