Jensen joins Bolton in loan deal
Under-23 goalkeeper Lukas Jensen, now in his second season at Turf Moor, has today moved to Bolton Wanderers on loan until the end of the season.
He’s progressed well at Burnley and has been part of the first team squad on a number of occasions, even making the bench last season at times during Project Restart.
Now at Bolton, he will be challenging former Claret Matt Gilks for game time and said today: “It’s been absolutely amazing to be here so far. I’ve been looking to get some experience of senior football for a long time, where there’s something on the line in every game.
“To be at Wanderers is really amazing. It’s a big club with a great history and I’ll do whatever I can to help bring back the good times.
“There has been many great Danish players who have played here and hopefully I can carry on and do what they did.”
Manager of the League Two club Ian Evatt was delighted. “Burnley kindly let us have a look at him last week,” he said. “The way he came in and led the team, was dominant with his voice, profile and performance, really impressed me.
“He’s 6ft 7in and is very athletic for a big guy. He will challenge Mat for the number one spot for the remainder of the season and I’m delighted that he’s with us.”Follow UpTheClarets:
