Vokes completes Wycombe move
Sam Vokes has this evening signed for Wycombe Wanderers and was presented to the Adams Park crowd before their friendly against Leicester City.
He’s signed a one-year deal with the option of a further year with Wycombe claiming to have pulled off a major coup to sign him.
Manager Gareth Ainsworth said: “Sam has been our number one target all summer and we’re pleased to bring him to Wycombe Wanderers. This is the culmination of so much hard work from a lot of people around the club, and we particularly owe a massive thank you to Andrew Howard for his incredible effort to get the deal done. It’s taken a lot of time, a lot of phone calls, a lot of late night meetings, but we got there and it’s a brilliant acquisition for this club.
“Sam’s experience speaks for itself, 64 caps for Wales, scoring in a European Championship quarter-final, winning promotion to the Premier League three times, and scoring a lot of goals in the top two tiers for Burnley over a seven-year period.
“He is the perfect fit for us in terms of his character and the way he plays, bringing out exciting, creative, attacking players into play, scoring plenty of goals himself, and he is the ideal man to lead the line for us in League One this season.”
Vokes, who will wear the number nine shirt at Wycombe left Burnley for Stoke two and a half years ago but not before making his mark with the Clarets to become a massive crowd favourite at the Turf.
His partnerships with Danny Ings and Andre Gray were memorable and he was leading goalscorer in 2016/17, the first that we survived a Premier League season.
There is only ONE SAM VOKES and Up the Clarets joins, I’m sure, every Burnley fan in wishing him all the very best at Wycombe.Share this page :
