Wales international joins Clarets on free transfer, signing a two-year deal

Burnley have completed the signing of goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey on a free transfer.

The 34-year-old has agreed a two-year deal with the option of a one-year extension, having left Crystal Palace when his contract expired at the end of last season.

“We’ve always known what Burnley are like," Hennessey told the club's official website. "[It's] a great atmosphere. The lads are superb, always tight and have always played really well together, and with Sean Dyche as well [they] have an amazing manager. 

“They’re exciting times and I’m excited to start working with the lads.”

Hennessey, who has been capped 96 times by Wales, has made 181 Premier League appearances for Wolverhampton Wanderers and Palace, keeping 37 clean sheets.

He is Burnley's second senior summer signing after defender Nathan Collins.
