Enock Agyei Signs In And Heads Out On Loan

Clarets Secure Signing of Belgian Youngster From Anderlecht 

Burnley Football Club have confirmed the signing of young striker Enock Agyei from Anderlecht on a four-and-a-half-year deal. The eighteen year old will be loaned straight out to Belgian side K.V. Mechelen until the end of the season, who are managed by former Claret Steven Defour.


After joining the Anderlecht academy from RSC Verviers in 2015, the forward has then progressed through the ‘Purple and White’ youth system featuring regularly for the U21 side. Agyei is already a Belgium U21 international and will now gain first team experience under Steven Defour’s guidance in the Belgian Pro League before returning to the Clarets in the summer.

Speaking after signing for the Clarets Enock Agyei said, “It is a new change for me and it is something that will help my development and my career. I spoke with Vincent and he persuaded me to come here and I think it is going to be a great chapter in my career.”

Former Burnley midfielder and Mechelen manager Defour said, “Enock has a lot of maturity in his game, despite his age. He never loses overview in his action, he’s a very creative player with a lot of speed and we are looking forward to working with him.”
