Burnley have moved to add some veteran depth in the form of Stoke City right back Phil Bardsley who signed on a permanent move for £2m.
With Glen Johnson getting more and more fragile with age, you have to expect that there is another move coming at the Britannia Stadium. Johnson certainly can't be counted on to play an entire season and Bardsley actually started 14 matches last season for Mark Hughes' side. Perhaps Hughes will employ a makeshift option behind Johnson in the event of injury this coming season but, if that isn't his plan then he'd better get shopping as the inbound defenders - Josh Tymon and Kurt Zouma - are a left back and a center back respectively with neither a) proven or b) a right back.
