It can now be confirmed that Fernando Guerrero has joined the Clarets on a season-long loan as reported earlier today in this article on Vital Burnley:

Guerrero One Year Loan Deal Agreed



Owen Coyle speaking about his new exciting prospect said:

‘Fernando is an exciting player for just 19-years-of-age and we believe he has unbelievable potential. We have agreed a loan deal, subject to an option to buy him.Obviously he is valued very highly by his club in Equador and if he comes in and shows us the quality we know he possesses I think he can go on to become a truly outstanding player’

The good news also is that he will not need a work permit due to the fact he holds a Spanish Nationality.

Guerrero has been given the Number 32 shirt for the season and will be good company for his fellow South Americian Hispanic-speaking teammate, Diego Penny.
