Republic of Ireland defender Nathan Collins has completed a move from Burnley to Wolves for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £20.5m, which would make him the most expensive Irish transfer of all time.

The current record transfer for an Irish footballer is Robbie Keane's £20m move to Liverpool from Tottenham back in 2008.

The 21-year-old Collins, who has won six caps, has penned a five-year deal at Wolves, with the option of a further 12 months.

On Tuesday morning, Collins completed his medical at Compton Park and watched Bruno Lage's team train, before joining the group as they headed on their pre-season training camp in Spain.

Collins joined Burnley from Stoke last summer, making 19 Premier League appearances and impressing despite the Clarets' eventual relegation from the top flight.

Meanwhile Ireland midfielder Josh Cullen has followed Vincent Kompany from Anderlecht to Turf Moor.

Cullen, 26, has agreed a three-year deal to become the Clarets' sixth summer signing after the two clubs agreed an undisclosed fee, reported to be £3 to £3.5m.

Kompany said: "We are delighted to welcome Josh to the squad, he's a hard-working and brave player, that will give everything for the team and the club.

"Josh is an intelligent midfielder, who is good on the ball and will help improve our side."

Cullen will team back up with Kompany after spending the last two seasons at Anderlecht, where he made 70 appearances in all competitions.

He progressed through West Ham's academy and had loan spells at Bradford, Bolton and Charlton before heading to Belgium in 2020. He's also become key cog in the Ireland engine room for Stephen Kenny, consistently impressing over the last year particularly.

Following relegation from the Premier League last season, Burnley have also signed ex-St Pat's defender Luke McNally, Scott Twine, CJ Egan-Riley, Taylor Harwood-Bellis and Samuel Bastien.

After excelling during the Nations League in June - including the wonder goal against Ukraine (above) - it was widely expected a Premier League club would bid for Collins and Wolves technical director Scott Sellars said the Midlands club had been tracking the former Cherry Orchard man for some time.

"We've looked at Nathan for a while and admired him, so we’re delighted to bring him to the football club.

"He’s a very talented young man – he’s only 21, has played international football and had a good season last year with Burnley. We think we’ve signed a player with a lot of potential, as well as being a very good footballer now."
