Burnley have signed defender Ben Gibson from Middlesbrough for a joint club record fee of £15million.

Gibson, 25, has signed a four-year deal at Turf Moor and will compete with established pairing Ben Mee and James Tarkowski for a place in the back four.

The centre-back has played one season in the Premier League and was called up to the England squad by Gareth Southgate in March 2017.
