CONFIRMED: Vaughan becomes a Shaker

24 August 2016

Striker James Vaughan signs a two-year deal with Bury FC

Bury FC are delighted to reveal James Vaughan as the clubs latest signing, after he put pen to paper on a two-year contract with the club at Carrington this morning.

28-year-old Vaughan, who began his career with Everton in 2004, still remains the Premier League’s youngest ever goal scorer at 16 years old.  Whilst with Everton, James enjoyed loan spells at Derby County, Leicester and Crystal Palace before he joined Norwich City in 2011.  A move to Huddersfield followed in 2013 following a successful loan spell before he joined Birmingham City early in 2016.

James has represented England at U17, U19 and Under 21 level. During the last decade James has commanded transfer fees of approx. £3.5 million.

James commented, soon after signing:  “I had a good chat with the Chairman and manager for a couple hours, listened to what they had to say and wanted to be part of the project they’ve got going on here”.

The club had moved swiftly in arranging this transfer after he was reportedly being chased by several Championship clubs, as well as clubs in Scotland, and joins the club on a free transfer after leaving Birmingham City.  He will wear the number 12 shirt during his time with the club and goes straight into the squad for Saturdays game with Walsall.
