Midfielder Jack Cork has secured a move to Premier League rivals Burnley in a £10 million deal, as confirmed by Swansea City.

The 28-year-old signed for the Swans back in January 2015 from Southampton for a deal around £3.5 million, and impressed during his two and a half years in South Wales.

Cork will now transfer to Burnley, who are looking to build on a decent campaign in the English top-flight last season under the guidance of Sean Dyche.

The Englishman was handed a lot of game-time at the Liberty Stadium during his tenure as a Swan, becoming a regular player in the starting XI for Garry Monk, Francesco Guidolin, Bob Bradley and Paul Clement.

However, Cork didn’t feature for Swansea in their last five games of the 2016/17 campaign, with Leon Britton’s emergence keeping him out of the fold.

And now with the signing of Roque Mesa, Cork’s future at SA1 seemed a little doubtful if he was to sustain regular minutes on the pitch.

Never really letting the Swans down on the field, Cork will leave the club with the best wishes of a majority of the Jack Army. Good luck, Jack.
