Burnley keeper, Alex Cisak (pictured above) signed a new two year deal in the summer but the stopper has struggled to make the first team eighteen this season having yet to make an appearance even on the bench in the top flight. Last season in the Championship, he was of course understudy to Tom Heaton but managed to make just one appearance all season. Tom Heaton had been controversially dismissed against Brighton & Hove Albion to earn himself a one-match ban. The next game up was the Capital One Cup clash at home to local rivals Preston North End so in stepped Alex Cisak to make his debut. By general consent he had a good, impressive game keeping a clean sheet and helping his team secure a 2-0 victory. He failed though to make another appearance all season.

The 25 year old effectively became third-string keeper after the arrival of Matt Gilks from Blackpool in the summer. It was no surprise therefore this week when it was announced that he had now gone out on loan to get some competitive games under his belt. Cisak has joined Sky Bet League outfit York City on a one-month loan deal and he will now link up with former Clarets assistant manager Russ Wilcox`s side until November 22. The former Oldham keeper will certainly have his work cut out with York City currently 22nd in the table on 11 points and just sitting above the drop zone on goal difference.

Another of our keeper`s on the move this week is Australian, Daniel Nizic. Nizic was signed by Burnley from Australian A-League club Sydney FC in July 2013 following a successful trial at Turf Moor but he has never represented the club at senior level. He has though been a regular in Michael Jolley`s Development Squad so far this season

In January 2014 last season, Nizic was sent out on loan to Conference North side, Workington AFC and despite having his loan extended to the end of the campaign was unable to prevent the Reds from being relegated. This week he joined another Vanarama Conference North club, Chorley after agreeing a one month loan deal. He will now be available to play for the Magpies until November 22.
