Burnley manager Sean Dyche has said he feels Aaron Lennon’s capture from Everton this January window will provide great experience to the squad in the second half of the campaign.

With confirmation of his signing announced on Tuesday evening, Dyche was obviously delighted to capture the 30 year old former England international and with almost 350 appearances across his career for Everton, Leeds United and Tottenham Hotspur in the top flight, the gaffer knows that will make him a valuable part of our squad.

Speaking to the Official Site with Lennon joining the group for training on Tuesday, Dyche explained in his midweek meet with the press that he felt the winger would soon become a key piece in the puzzle at the club.

‘The obvious advantages are his experience, along with his pace. He`s another rounded figure in the Premier League in our camp, because we haven`t got that many. He can rub off on the players as well. Some do it by the way they go about their business and their understanding of the level. But he`s also got 21 England caps and that adds in to his experience level, so it’s a bit of everything.’

Dyche went on to say.

‘He`s a different type of player in our camp because we want to keep shifting it forward. It`s finding that nice balance between players who can develop with us and players who are more rounded, who can add to the group.’

With fans largely welcoming Lennon into the group, with his experience of the top flight it really shouldn’t take him too long to settle and hopefully we’ll quickly reap the benefits as he gets himself back to full form following his spell at Goodison Park.
