Burnley officially confirmed that the team is about to sign Brighton midfielder Stephens.
Burnley officials said that Stephens will complete the transfer on Thursday, local time.
Burnley coach Dyqi confirmed that Stephens will officially become a member of the team in the next 24 hours.
Burnley had bought Stephens four years ago when they had just returned to the Premier League.
But Brighton rejected Burnley's multiple offers for Stephens, and now the player has lost his main position in Brighton.
Stephens's contract with Brighton will expire next summer, after news that he had received a medical examination from Burnley in London.
