Wout Weghorst has long had a desire to make a switch to the Premier League and was linked to Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in the past.

The striker has now managed to seal a move to England when Burnley signed him from VfL Wolfsburg on the deadline day of the January transfer window.

Sean Dyche’s have reportedly invested around €14m plus bonuses to secure the 28-year-old’s services, with the Netherlands international’s task to help the Premier League side avoid getting relegated this season.

The Clarets are currently at the bottom of the table with 12 points from 18 matches, four points behind 17th place Norwich City, who have played four more games than Burnley.

Weghorst’s decision to leave the Bundesliga side for Burnley has not pleased former Ajax and the Netherlands star, Marco van Basten.

“I am very curious if he will do well,” Van Basten questioned Weghorst’s move to Turf Moor during Rondo, relayed by Soccernews.

The Dutchman is not a fan of the Burnley’s new signing. In his criticism of Weghorst, he said: “I just don’t like him as a player. I don’t like him on the ball. He is a boy who gives [away the ball] a lot, but to say: He can head very well, or shoot very well…

When pointed out it was Weghorst dream to play in England, Van Basten said: “He’s not a loser, but he likes going to Burnley. They are last in the Premier League. But they are going to be relegated. They are last in the Premier League. You can’t be happy with that, can you?”
