Hennings in Bundesliga 2 return
Rouwen Hennings has returned home to Germany and to Bundesliga 2 side Fortuna Düsseldorf but this time on a permanent basis after spending the entire 2016/17 season with them.
Hennings arrived at Turf Moor from Karlsruhe on a three year contract in August 2015 and made his debut at Ipswich coming on as a substitute for Jelle Vossen. But he failed to establish himself with the Clarets. By the end of that title winning season he’d made 26 league appearances which included only three starts.
He scored the first goal in the 2-2 draw at Cardiff and netted his second and last Burnley goal at Middlesbrough in the FA Cup, the equaliser as we came from behind to win 2-1. His last appearance was in the 1-1 home draw against Wolves in March 2016.
He joined Düsseldorf last season on loan, scoring nine goals for them, and it was known they were keen to keep him. Today they’ve secured him with a three year deal after Burnley agreed to let him go on a free transfer.
On completing his move, Hennings said: “I am happy that everything went well and I can continue wearing the Fortuna jersey. It was important for me to have clarity early and that worked. In the coming season is quite possible, we had a great cohesion last year. Now I am happy to be a part of it.Share this page :
