Clarets agree Richards deal

The 28-year-old Jamaica international, who used to play for New

York Red Bulls, will join the Clarets on January 1 when his deal

with the MLS side expires.

Manager Eddie Howe said: “We are delighted to have signed Dane,

who is a player we have been tracking for a while.

“I watched him at New York, where he played for a number of

years and he is someone who has all the attributes we are looking

for to add to our squad.

“He is quick and direct, has a real turn of pace and I think he

will be joining us at a good time in January, hopefully to give us

a push in the second half of the season.

“He has good international experience, he is a good age and

we’re looking forward to adding him to the squad.”
