Breaking: Burnley signs Lennon

Former Tottenham winger, Aaron Lennon has joined Burnley from Premier League club Everton for an undisclosed fee.

The England International chose to leave Goodison Park and move to Turf Moor after he fell down the pecking order following Theo Walcott’s arrival from Arsenal, as it is certain his game time will be further reduced. His signing has now been confirmed by the Clarets’ official website.

Lennon spent about three years on Merseyside with the Toffees, he will now wear jersey number 25 for his new club although details of his transfer contract were undisclosed.

The 30-year-old fast-foot winger was pleased to move to Lancashire, however, he revealed how much he was looking forward to helping Sean Dyche’s men move forward after a sensational start to the season.

He said: “Burnley was the club I wanted to come to and I can’t wait to get started. I’m looking forward to playing here.

“The club is moving forward and I want to hopefully play a part in that to keep it going in that direction.

“I think I’ve still got a lot to offer. I am only 30 and I still want to play at the highest level. I have missed a bit of football in the last year or so and I just want to get back and play as much as possible.

“I’ve never had an easy game against Burnley and this year they have done fantastic. They deserve to be where they are. Hopefully, I can help the side continue that and have a good end of the season.

“The team has done brilliantly. There are 14 games to go and hopefully, we can kick on and maintain a place in the top half, which would be brilliant for the football club.”
