Vincent Kompany Due To Phone Burnley Target Tonight

Burnley manager Vincent Kompany is due to have a phone call with Belgium midfielder Aster Vranckx tonight to convince him to move to Turf Moor.


Kompany is in the process of equipping his squad for life in the Premier League and has zeroed in on Vranckx.

The Belgian is on the books at German club Wolfsburg, who are open to selling him this summer for the right price.

Other clubs are also keen on Vranckx though and Kompany may have to present a convincing pitch to the player.


It is something he will work on this evening as, according to French journalist Loic Tanzi, he is due to call Vranckx.

Kompany will speak to the 20-year-old about the project at Burnley and how he would fit into it.



If Burnley can persuade Vranckx that heading to Turf Moor is the right move, then they can set about putting an agreement in place with Wolfsburg.

The midfielder spent last season on loan at Italian giants AC Milan, but struggled for game time, with just nine outings in Serie A spanning 235 minutes of football.

The 29-year-old has signed a three-year contract Vincent Kompany made phone call to Burnley’s next summer signing last nightt Turf Moor and becomes the Clarets’ second signing since they secured their return to the top flight.

Camden-born Vigouroux – who has previously had spells at Brentford, Tottenham Hotspur, and Liverpool – was a key part of the Orient side that won League Two last season, keeping 24 clean sheets.

While at the east London outfit, Vigouroux won the O’s Player of the Season award in three successive campaigns from 2020-21.

Having started his career in Tottenham’s academy and moved on to Liverpool’s youth set-up, via a loan spell at Hyde United in non-league football, Vigouroux signed for League One Swindon in 2015.

The Chilean enjoyed four storied seasons at the County Ground prior to signing for Orient in 2019 – months before Town won League Two.


Having pledged his international allegiance to Chile, for whom he qualifies through one of his parents, Vigouroux later had a short stint at Everton de Vina del Mar in the South American country.

Burnley manager Vincent Kompany told the club’s website, burnleyfc.com: “We are looking forward to Lawrence being part of what we are building here at Burnley.

“He has come through top academy systems to become the player he is today with standout performances in recent years.

“He is a very talented goalkeeper with a good personality and someone we will enjoy working with.”

Vigouroux’s arrival comes after Burnley’s capture of Republic of Ireland defender Dara O’Shea from West Brom.

Vigouroux said: “It’s amazing to be here, an unbelievable training ground to be a part of and I’m really happy.

“As much as I really enjoyed playing for Leyton Orient, this was the right step and the right way to go. Hopefully, I can leave an impression here.”

Linking back up with forward Scott Twine at Turf Moor, after the pair played together in Wiltshire, Vigouroux said: “I can’t wait to meet him.

“He’s a really nice kid, and I loved playing and training with him at Swindon. He was one of the best players there at the time, and he’s gone on to be a really, really top player. I’m really proud of him.”
