Peruvian International keeper, Diego Penny has now arrived in the UK from Peru and will soon be linking up with his new team- mates.

Red tape and US visa problems prevented him joining up with the Clarets on their recent US tour.

Penny however does now have his UK work permit after a successful appeal and signed a three year contract with Burnley FC last month.

He arrived at Manchester Airport this afternoon following a long haul flight from Lima,Peru.

Diego is expected to be introduced tomorrow as the Clarets embark on their Scottish tour. The 24-year old 6ft 5 stopper, could well make his debut in our first match of the tour against Queen of the South tomorrow.
