Quite the journeyman to say the least, the 26-year-old has played for eight different clubs at a senior level over the past seven seasons. He has 26 goals and 20 assists to his name in 233 matches.

“I am delighted to finally be here. Obviously, it is nice and late in the window, but I am happy to get it done. It has been a long day but all worth it in the end,” Burke told Blues TV.
