Scott Twine has left MK Dons after signing for Championship side Burnley.

The 22-year-old has signed a 4 year contract at Turf Moor with the side relegated from last season’s Premier League, and moves for an undisclosed fee. Some sources have suggested could be worth £4million or £5million, although no official figures have been confirmed.

Twine had been linked with several clubs in the off-season, with Hull City and Sheffield United among the clubs most strongly linked with the former Swindon player.

But Burnley ultimately met the Dons’ asking price, with Twine joining a side now managed by former Manchester City captain and Belgian international Vincent Kompany.

Twine enjoyed a sensational solo campaign at stadium mk after signing from Swindon, scoring 20 goals and registering 13 assists for a Dons team that finished 3rd in League One. He was named League One Player of the Year by the EFL, as well as winning the Dons’ Player of the Year prize.

In his arrival interview with the Clarets, Twine said he was delighted to make the step-up to the Championship.

He said, “I am buzzing. I have definitely made the right decision joining Burnley.

“I spoke in depth with the manager and his plans are exciting, it was a no brainer for me to sign. I can’t wait to get started and it feels like the right place for me.”

His new boss Kompany added, “We are delighted to have brought Scott to the Club. He’s an exciting young player that will help us in the short-term process and in the long-term project at Burnley Football Club.”

MK Dons’ Sporting Director Liam Sweeting told the club’s official website that he had praise for Twine’s work in Milton Keynes and that they felt the deal worked best for the club.

He said, “When we signed Scott, we knew we had secured one of the most exciting players within the EFL – what followed was performance after performance of top quality, from a player who was all-in on our culture and thrived playing in a team-first environment that challenged him to be the best he could be.

“Those performances, along with winning Sky Bet League One Player of the Year, were always going to attract interest and we have again negotiated a deal that we feel is good for the Club in both the short and long term.”

Dons Head Coach Liam Manning added, “I cannot speak highly enough of Twiney, first of all as a person and then as a player who has developed tremendously over the past 12 months.

“Credit to the coaching staff here for the development we saw over the course of last season but also Twiney for his dedication and commitment in training, on the pitch on Saturdays and also behind-the-scenes when nobody was watching.

“We wish him nothing but success moving forwards and I’m sure we all be keeping an eager eye on his future career.”
