Official | Vincent Kompany’s Burnley sign Vitinho from Cercle Brugge

Vincent Kompany has brought Vitinho to Burnley, signing the Brazilian right-back from Cercle Brugge.

Since leaving Anderlecht to take charge of the side that was last year relegated from England’s top division, Kompany has done lots of his shopping in his home country.

He brought Josh Cullen from his former club, Samuel Bastien from Standard Liege and has now secured the signing of Vitinho.

“We’re pleased to add Vitinho to our team, he’s a quick & strong full-back, who will get forward and can defend well,” the manager told the official Burnley website.

“He has great technical ability and will be a great addition to our squad, we look forward to welcoming him to the team.”

Vitinho, who made 69 league appearances for Cercle Brugge in four years, becomes the first Brazilian to ever play for the English club, and is excited to get started.

“I am very happy to be here, it’s a big club, it’s a very exciting place to be,” the right-back said.

“The players, the manager, the coaches, the training centre, it’s great for me and will only help me get better as a player.”
