Nizic wins two year Morecambe deal
When Burnley played Morecambe at the Globe Arena twelve days ago there was a surprise substitution in the second half when they introduced goalkeeper Danijel Nizic who had just joined them in trial.
The 21-year-old Australian had officially been a Burnley player for three years, but had spent the previous year with the club having been brought in by Eddie Howe, although red tape prevented him from signing.
He did make the bench during last season when Matt Gilks was ruled out, but his only first team football during his time at Turf Moor was in loans at Workington, Chorley and Crewe where he played just one game as a substitute in the FA Cup against Eastleigh.
But he’s impressed during his trial at Morecambe with the League Two club confirming yesterday that he’d signed a two-year deal with manager Jim Bentley saying: “Danijel is an extremely promising young keeper who will continue to improve. He will provide Barry Roche with good competition and I think he will be an excellent addition to the squad.”
Nizic will find himself in familiar company. In June, Morecambe signed Luke Conlan from Burnley and just five days ago they signed Alex Whitmore on loan until January.Share this page :
