News Update


Burnley sign forward Zeki Amdouni from Basel for an unknown price.

The 22-year-old striker, who led the Europa Conference League with seven goals last season, has agreed to a five-year contract.

Amdouni also scored 12 goals in the Swiss Super League and has five goals in four Euro 2024 qualification games for Switzerland.

“Zeki is such a goal threat,” Burnley manager Vincent Kompany remarked about Zeki.

“He’s been on our radar for quite some time. His ability to play the final pass results in several assists, and he scores frequently as a result of the amount of work he puts in on the field.

“He’s a very intelligent footballer who is also technically gifted and has a strong work ethic.” He has a lot of potential.”

Amdouni has had a strong start to his international career, having earned his debut for Switzerland in a 2-1 Nations League triumph against the Czech Republic last September.

In his second encounter for his country, a 5-0 Euro 2024 qualifying triumph in Belarus in March, he scored his first senior goal, and he added four more in successive qualifiers against Israel, Andorra, and Romania.

This summer, he also scored twice in Switzerland’s 2-1 extra-time loss to Spain in the quarter-finals of the European Under-21 Championships.

Last season, he scored 22 goals in 52 games for Basel, including two in the 4-3 aggregate loss to Fiorentina in the Europa Conference League semi-finals.

“I’m excited to start,” Amdouni told Burnley’s official website. “I understand that the Premier League is the best league in the world.” It will not be easy, but I am optimistic that with the help of the coach and the staff, I can achieve success here.”
