Burnley have handed a new contract to young Danish goalkeeper Lukas Jensen, tying him to the club until 2021 with the option of a further year.

‘It’s brilliant to sign my first ‘permanent’ contract,’ Jensen said on the club’s website.

The Young Dane has been part of the Under 23s set-up and will remain at the club until 2021

The Clarets still have Nick Pope, Joe Hart, Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Adam Legzdins in squad

‘It’s been a long journey, but we are finally here and it’s the best feeling ever.

‘I am delighted to have signed this with Burnley. It’s a big dream to do it with a Premier League club. It’s like a childhood dream came true.’

Jensen remains down the pecking order at Turf Moor, with Nick Pope the established number one, and Joe Hart, Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Adam Legzdins also on the books.

However, he hopes the new deal will afford him time to develop and move up the ranks.

‘Hopefully I can keep learning from all the top goalkeepers at Burnley and kick on from here,’ he said.
