Cape Town - Burnley have announced the signing of Everton winger Aaron Lennon for an undisclosed fee.

The 30-year-old England international joined the Toffees in 2015 after a successful loan spell, following 10 years with Tottenham Hotspur where he played 365 times, scoring 30 goals and creating a further 77.

He has, however, not been a regular starter with Everton over the past few seasons, and leaves with 77 appearances, nine goals and six assists.

This term, Lennon has played 19 games in total, without scoring.

A statement from the Clarets read: "Burnley Football Club is delighted to confirm the signing of Aaron Lennon from Everton."

Lennon told Clarets Player HD: “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 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.”
