Burnley have confirmed that Aaron Lennon has returned to the club.

The 34-year-old winger has featured in pre-season for the club and returns to Turf Moor having made 55 appearances during a two-year stay which ended with his departure in the summer of 2020.

Former England international Lennon spent last season in Turkey with Kayserispor after failing to agree a new contract with the Clarets, and he becomes Sean Dyche’s third signing of the summer after goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey and defender Nathan Collins.

Dyche has been on the look-out for wide players, with the club making progress in their pursuit of Lyon’s Maxwel Cornet with the clubs having agreed a £15m fee.

Lennon is available for tonight's Carabao Cup tie with Newcastle United, but no details have been provided on the length of his deal


Speaking of Lennon earlier in the summer, Dyche said: "He wanted to come in and train, he is welcome. He has played a couple of games and it has done him good and us good to remind ourselves of the fact he is a good player.

"He is enjoying it, enjoying the environment, he knows what we are about and knows the players or most of them and he has been more than welcome."
