Burnley have confirmed the signing of Manchester City defender Ben Mee.

Mee: Season long deal at Burnley

The England Under-21 full-back has joined the Clarets on loan for the season and he becomes Eddie Howe's first capture of the summer.

Mee spent the back end of last season with Leicester City and a number of clubs were known to be chasing him.

But Burnley have now concluded a deal for Mee, who is very highly-rated at Eastlands.

Mee made his City first-team debut in the Carling Cup last term, before making his league bow at Leicester.
