Jason Shackell Joins Derby County

Burnley Football Club have today confirmed that club captain Jason Shackell has joined Sky Bet Championship side Derby County on a three year deal for an undisclosed fee.


Shackell, returns the iPro Stadium after he was granted permission to speak to the East Midlands side on Thursday afternoon.  He made 49 appearances for the Rams in the 2011/12 season and rejoins them after making 136 appearances for the Clarets.

Speaking about the club captains move Burnley manager Sean Dyche said, “Jason really made it clear to me at the end of last season  and it’s fair to say Derby County made an offer that was so large he found he couldn’t refuse it.

Outside the Premier League there are still some clubs throwing enormous amounts of money at the situation, and Derby are one of those clubs.  His motivation was to go there for the contract that was on offer.

We feel we had to stand as strong, as we have done, to make sure we got the required amount of money for him.”
