Burnley returns to the Premier League for 2023-24 after being relegated in he 2021-22. Vincent Kompany was appointed as the manager of Burnley following their relegation. He has transformed the way Burnley plays football since former manager Sean Dyche. Inherited from his days as a football player, Kompany emphasizes possession and spacing, which, with seven league matches remaining, resulted in Burnley being first to confirm promotion, eventually winning the championship at the end of the season.

One of the first transfers Burnley has completed since promotion is to activate the buyout clause in Jordan Beyer’s loan deal from Borussia M’gladbach. Louis Jordan Beyer is a talented German footballer who primarily plays as a center-back. Known for his strong defensive abilities and composure on the ball, Beyer has shown great promise throughout his career. Born on May 19, 2000 in Kempen Germany, Beyer began his football journey in the youth ranks of Borussia M’gladbach. He climbed through the club’s academy, showcasing his skills and earning promotions to various youth teams. Beyer’s performances caught the attention of the senior team, and he eventually made his professional debut for Borussia M’gladbach.

In season 2019-20, Beyer was loaned to Hamburg SV where he gained valuable experience playing in the second division of Bundesliga. These loan spells allowed him to develop his game and adapt to different styles of play. Beyer’s impressive performances during his loan spells earned him recognition and paved the way for his return to Borussia M’gladbach, where he featured in 18 matches for the senior team in 2021-22.

In September 2022, Beyer was loaned to Burnley FC in the English Premier League. This showcased his growing reputation and potential, as he joined a competitive league to further test his skills at a higher level. Beyer’s loan spell at Burnley has been an opportunity to prove himself in a different footballing environment. Following the successful loan, Beyer has now made the move permanent. The club recognized his abilities and potential, securing his services for the future. As a center-back, Beyer’s attributes include strong defensive positioning, aerial ability, and a good reading of the game. Additionally, his technical skills and ability to attack make him a well-rounded player.

From a fantasy manager’s point of view, the 22-year-old German defender played 30 out of the 46 matches in the Championship, plus he featured five times in local tournaments (FA cup and League Cup). He has contributed to 18 clean sheets and scoring his first-ever goal in January besides having two assists.

“It’s really what you dream of. It’s what I’ve always dreamed of playing in the Premier League and now hopefully the dream is coming true and I can’t wait to get started.” Jordan Beyer told Burnley’s official website. At just 23, Beyer has already showcased his talent and versatility. With his solid performances and potential for further development, he is poised to have a promising future. As he continues to grow and gain experience, football fans can expect to see more of Louis Jordan Beyer’s name in coming seasons.
