Burnley have announced the permanent signing of winger Michael Kightly from Stoke, subject to approval.

The 28-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Turf Moor, has secured a three-year deal with the Barclays Premier League newcomers after the clubs agreed an undisclosed fee.

Kightly is manager Sean Dyche's first signing since the Clarets secured promotion to the top flight.

He told the club's website, www.burnleyfootballclub.com: "As soon as we secured promotion to the Premier League last season, I wanted to make sure that I signed.

"Coming in on loan is usually difficult but it only took a few weeks here to get settled and it is great to be a permanent Burnley player now, as opposed to a loanee.

"It took a while to get it over the line but now it is all secured I'm really pleased."

Kightly played a key role in Burnley's successful 2013-14 campaign and scored five goals in 38 appearances.

The Basildon-born player began his career in non-League football before joining Wolves and later having a loan spell at Watford.

He joined Stoke in the summer of 2012 but was allowed to move to Burnley a year later.

Kightly said: "At the tail end of last season I felt like I was getting back to my best and if I can carry that into next season then I will have a good campaign.

"It'll be a tough start to the campaign with Chelsea at home but you can look at that in two ways and we'll certainly start with a positive mindset.

"People might write us off, but we're certainly not here to make up the numbers and hopefully we can surprise a few people again."
