Burnley boss Sean Dyche has made Genk striker Jelle Vossen, who spent last term on loan at Middlesbrough, his second signing of the summer.

The 26-year-old, who scored seven times in 33 Championship appearances for Boro last season, and played in the play-off final defeat to Norwich City, has penned a three-year deal with the Clarets.

He scored a first-half hat-trick for Boro at Millwall in December, and also found the net in the 2-1 semi-final first leg play-off success against Brentford.

Vossen has joined up with the rest of the Burnley squad at their pre-season training camp in France.

The Belgium international scored 105 goals in 244 appearances for Genk and was also sent out on loan to Cercle Brugge in the 2009/10 season, scoring eight goals in 21 appearances for the club.

Vossen has played at every level of the Belgium side from Under-15 level upwards and has scored twice in 12 appearances for the senior side since making his international debut in 2009.

Burnley are available at 1/1 to win their first Championship game of the season on 8th August against Leeds United and are 1/1 to be promoted in the 2015/16 season.
