Burnley and Dundee have confirmed a partnership agreement which has already resulted in two loan moves.
The clubs, who are both under American ownership, say the working relationship will “foster a platform to engage and enhance emerging and developing talent” while creating opportunities to pursue shared ambitions.
Dundee signed forward Dara Costelloe and left-back Owen Dodgson on loan from Burnley earlier this month.
Burnley chairman Alan Pace said: “We are thrilled to embark on this new journey with Dundee FC, who like Burnley, share a rich history and passionate fanbase.
“This relationship enhances our collective strength and will bring about some fantastic opportunities for shared growth and success.
“The Scottish Premiership is an excellent proving ground to progress young and emerging talent, as well as providing a potential gateway to European competition.
“We’re looking forward to working closely with Dundee FC and creating meaningful mutual and lasting impacts both on and off the pitch.”
Dundee chairman Tim Keyes added: “Joining forces with a club of this stature is a real statement of intent and one which we hope will support our journey towards greater heights in the future.”
