Defender Bedeau joins Clarets
Following on from the capture of Mark Helm, Burnley have now added defender Jacob Bedeau to the under-23 squad ahead of the 2021/22 season.
Like Helm, he’s signed a two year deal with the option of a third year and he comes with Football League experience at two of his previous three clubs.
He made his first team debut at Bury as a 16-year-old at a time when Chris Brass, who is now with Nottingham Forest, was manager but in January of 2017 he moved to Aston Villa for a fee recorded at around £1 million before then signing for Scunthorpe, for whom he made 53 first team appearances, two years later.
A free agent, the 21-year-old has grabbed the chance to move to Burnley. “I was really interested and excited when I heard about Burnley,” he said. “I have been around a little bit for a young player. I think it’s got me good experience and I’m just hoping to come and push on and develop here.
“It’s another step and hopefully a big step. Hopefully, I do well here. I will work hard and hopefully get me where I want to be, which is in and around the first team and pushing that kind of way. The set-up is top-class; the pitches, the gyms, the facilities are second to none. It’s good to be able to develop yourself at somewhere like this. Villa was similar and I’m just excited to start here.”
It’s just the start today with further additions expected for the under-23s before the new season gets underway.Share this page :
