Burnley have completed the £1.1m signing of former Norwich City centre-back Jason Shackell on a four-year deal.

Clarets boss Eddie Howe had made 28-year-old Shackell his number one defensive target this summer after missing out to Derby for the defender 12 months ago.

One of Shackell’s ex-Canary central defensive partners is also on the move with Gary Doherty signing a two-year contract with League Two club Wycombe after being released by Charlton.

Doherty, 32, played 13 matches on loan to Wycombe last season.

  • same here, MB, I thought he was going to get to the big time. The first time I saw him was against Cardiff and all the hype during the week had been about what a threat Earnshaw would be. But Shacks had him in his pocket.

  • Derby have let Lee Croft go on loan to Oldham (surplus to requirements) and Sammy Clingan is a free agent after his Coventry contract expired. Apparently, the Coventry fans nicknamed him "Sammy the Crab" because he only passed sideways. Ray Wilkins made a stellar career out of that!

  • Doc had his own unique style which at times at you on thedge of your seat but another good honest professional and good to hear he is still wanted. Shacks I agree with MB I thought he would make the big time I wish him well.

  • Jason`s been around a bit now. His transfer fee is holding up quite well. At one time I thought he was going to make it to the big time; good player. Derby seem to be having a clear-out. Good old Doc! He`ll play until he drops. All good wishes to the `Ginger Pele`!

  • Can't believe Shackell's only 28. I thought he was about 32. Seems to have been around forever. Lee Croft- met him on a "meet the players" social evening once. He was one of our best players @ the time. He was all nicey-nicey. Few weeks later he bangs in a transfer request ! He went from hero to zero in about a week. He must've had a bit of a dip in form to be lent to Oldham....

  • Doc was Player of the Year once, wasn`t he? I used to cringe when he started wrapping his arms round forwards in the Penalty area! All-in wrestling. Scored a few useful goals, too. He was played as a striker for a while, when we didn`t have one. Definitely a good ol` boi!
