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.

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.
