Burnley have confirmed the permanent signing of on-loan defender Ben Mee from Premier League leaders Manchester City for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old has made 23 appearances for Eddie Howe's side since arriving at Turf Moor in July.

He made one appearance for City, in the League Cup, and also had a loan spell at Leicester last season.
