Burnley on Tuesday signed Wales goalkeeper, Wayne Hennessey, on a two-year contract with an option for a third.
The news was disclosed on Burnley website.
The 34-year-old, who was an unused sub in Wales’ EURO 2020 campaign became a free agent after he was released by Premier League rival, Crystal Palace, earlier this month.
“Everyone knows how good he is and what a nice guy he is, together with all the goalkeepers and the team,” said Hennessey after clocking on for his first day’s training at Barnfield.
“There have been so many goalkeepers – British goalkeepers as well – down the line.
“All superb goalkeepers, so for me to come and be one of them is fantastic.
“Popey’s a great lad but it’s competition, which is healthy.
“That’s part of the goalkeeping union. There’s always competition. There’s always that one spot but we’ll be friends off the field.
“There’s a fantastic spirit here and hopefully we’ll do really well this season.
“We’ve always known what Burnley are like. A great atmosphere. The lads are superb, always tight and have always played really well together and with Sean Dyche, as well, have an amazing manager.
“They’re exciting times and I’m excited to start working with the lads.”
Hennessey has played 96 times Wales as well as 181 Premier League appearances for Wolves and Palace.
