All three players have already been playing for Burnley at youth level, with their signings having now been ratified by the Premier League. They have all been given professional contracts as they aim to succeed at the Lancashire club.

Burnley will hope that all three players will be able to develop significantly now that they are training with the club on a full-time basis and the ultimate aim will be for at least one of them to challenge for a place in the first-team squad in due course.
