Everton Winger Lennon Joins Burnley

Aaron Lennon has officially joined Burnley FC from Everton on a three-and-a-half-year deal.

The 30-year-old brings an end to his three-year stay at Goodison Park where he initially joined on loan back in February 2015 season and went on to score nine goals in 77 appearances for the Toffees.

The former England international will now wear shirt number 25 at Turf Moor.

And after 14 years as a player in the top flight, the winger is keen to help Burnley continue to establish themselves as a Premier League club and build on their current eighth place in the table under manager Sean Dyche.

“Burnley was the club I wanted to come to and I can’t wait to get started. I’m looking forward to playing here,” Lennon told Clarets Player HD.

“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 to the season.

“The team has done brilliant. 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.”
