Burnley announce new signing Zeki Amdouni with Teletubbies video


In the midst of the transfer window frenzy, clubs are going to great lengths to make their player announcements memorable.

Arsenal recently garnered attention by enlisting Nigerian singer Odumodublvck for a special rendition of his hit song ‘Declan Rice’ to announce the arrival of England midfielder Declan Rice.

Meanwhile, Burnley has taken a unique approach in unveiling their new signing, Switzerland striker Zeki Amdouni.

Amdouni, who impressed with 22 goals in 55 appearances for Basel last season, has signed a five-year deal with Burnley in a deal with an undisclosed fee. While fans are undoubtedly excited about his on-field prospects, it was Burnley’s announcement video that stole the spotlight.

In a rather peculiar move, Burnley posted a Teletubbies-inspired video on their Twitter page to confirm Amdouni’s signing. The clip features the Swiss international engaging in conversation with the four Teletubbies and appearing on the stomach-screen of Tinky Winky, before conveying a message directly to Burnley fans.

The announcement video has sparked a significant buzz, with fans and pundits offering mixed reviews. Despite the varied reactions, one thing is for sure: Burnley’s creative approach has certainly made Amdouni’s signing a topic of discussion and a standout moment in this summer’s transfer announcements.
