Lukas Jutkiewicz signs permanent £1m deal

Posted: Tue 20 Dec 2016

Gianfranco Zola has made his first signing as Blues Manager by securing the permanent signing of loanee Lukas Jutkiewicz.

The striker joins us from Premier League Burnley for a fee of £1 million and he’s signed a three-and-a-half year contract, plus a one year option.

Jutkiewicz’s loan expires at midnight on 2 January 2017 meaning he will still be eligible for our home match against Brentford. 

His permanent registration will then commence from the next day, 3 January.

Jutkiewicz has been a big hit since he arrived on the final day of the transfer window in August. 

The 27-year-old has made 17 appearances so far, scoring six headed goals.

Stay tuned to for the thoughts of Gianfranco Zola and Lukas Jutkiewicz.
