Burnley goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey has completed a permanent move to newly promoted Nottingham Forest.

The Welshman – who has earned more than 100 caps for his country - joined the Clarets last summer after leaving Crystal Palace.

He went on to make three appearances in total for the club, most recently a 3-1 defeat at Leeds United back in January.

Hennessey said: “I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone at Burnley Football Club for the past 12 months.

“The players, the staff and the supporters, who stood by us every week and every game. Thank you so much to you all.

“My time was only brief at Turf Moor and it didn’t end how we would have hoped, but I loved being a part of this special club and it will always hold a place in my heart.

“Good luck for the new season and pushing back to getting where you belong.”

Forest were promoted to the Premier League last season after overcoming Huddersfield Town in the play-off final at Wembley.

Manager Steve Cooper added: “Wayne is an excellent goalkeeper who has proven himself at the highest level over many years.

“He’s helped Wales reach new heights in the international game and he has a wealth of Premier League experience.

“However, Wayne is also a great character and he is a very strong addition to the Nottingham Forest dressing room.”

England international Nick Pope also left Turf Moor this summer, joining Newcastle United following the Clarets’ relegation from the top-flight.

Burnley have been linked with a move for Manchester City's Arijanet Muric, with Vincent Kompany said to be a fan of the shot stopper.
