Burnley have announced the signing of Adam Philips on a one year contract, after his contract at fellow Premier League rivals, Norwich City, had expired. Aged 21, the midfielder joins Burnley with the hope of adding experience to further his career after spells at Liverpool and Norwich.
Here’s what Phillips has had to say on his move to Burnley:
“I can’t wait for the season to start now and hopefully we’ll have a good start and I’ll get some games under my belt. It’s quite a young squad and hopefully I can help out a few of the younger lads moving forward. It’s a good group and I’m looking forward to what’s to come.”
Phillips started his career in the Liverpool youth system, joining Norwich City as a free transfer in 2018. Although he failed to make a first team appearance for Norwich, he was a regular in the Premier League Two, featuring on 22 occasions, scoring 3 goals in the process.
Phillips did also go out on loan to Cambridge United in 2017/18, featuring 4 times. Whilst, during the 2018/19 campaign he went out on loan to Hamilton Academical, making just two cup appearances.
Internationally, Phillips has represented England at various youth levels, namely at under-16’s and under-17’s.
Fantasy Football Potential
Phillips will link up with Steve Stone’s under-23’s for the coming campaign with the aim to break into the senior side in the coming years. It is therefore highly unlikely that we will see the youngster in the Premier League this season, nor in a fantasy team this campaign.
