Burnley have pocketed €1.5m from the deal taking Wout Weghorst to TSG Hoffenheim this summer, with a previous clause in his contract having already been used.

That’s according to Kicker, who provide details on the transfer after it was confirmed earlier today that the Dutchman would be moving from Turf Moor.

Weghorst has joined Hoffenheim on a season-long loan deal after returning from a loan spell at Manchester United in the second half of last season.

It’s a third straight loan deal for Weghorst, who seemingly has no future at Burnley but has a contract with the Clarets until 2025.

Kicker explain that the striker had enjoyed a clause in his contract allowing him to leave on loan for free, but the 31-year-old had already taken advantage of that to join Besiktas last season.

Thus, Manchester United had to pay €3m for him in the January transfer window, while Hoffenheim have now paid €1.5m to have him this year. There is no purchase option included in the deal between the two clubs.

The Kraichgauers have refused to comment on the terms of his contract at the German club, but either way the one-year deal is seen as smart business from them and we’re sure Burnley feel the same way.
