BURNLEY have completed the signing of former Blackburn Rovers man Steven Reid.
The 33-year-old was a free agent after the expiry of his contract at West Bromwich Albion and has agreed a one-year deal at Turf Moor.
Reid represented Blackburn between 2003 and 2010, and Burnley boss Sean Dyche said: “Steven is a very strong minded professional and he has had years in the Premier League so he has that bit of experience and know how.
“I know him personally from his younger days at Millwall and he was a very solid pro then and he still is now, perhaps a more rounded version of what he was then.
“Along with Matty Taylor we want that experience in the building as well as the vibrancy in the team.
“Both of those players played in some really awkward games for West Brom and West Ham respectively, and hopefully that experience can rub off on others.”
