Burton Albion have broke their transfer record fee by signing Ross County striker Liam Boyce on a three-year deal.
Boyce, formily of Cliftonville in the Irish Premiership has been considered as the best striker to play in the divisons history which coaxed Werder Bremen to sign him at an early age. With a short spell at the club he went back to his Belfast-native club Cliftonville, before being snapped up by Ross County in the Scottish Premiership.
26 year old Boyce was the top goal scorer in the Scottish Premiership last season with 23 goals and he also scored for his country, Northern Ireland in their recent international against New Zealand.
Burton Albion confirmed their highly-rated signing on their twitter feed:
Boyce spoke on the move “I’m absolutely buzzing to finally get it done. There’s been a lot of speculation so now I’m just happy to be here.
“I want to go to the next level and, no disrespect to Scotland, but the English Championship is a step up in quality and I wanted to come and test myself.”
Boss Nigel Clough added “Liam has done very well there for a couple of seasons and he’s a full Northern Ireland international. He’s the right kind of character and he is desperate to come down and prove himself in England.”
