Winger Aaron Lennon believes he still has plenty to offer after joining Burnley from Everton for an undisclosed fee.

Lennon played 77 matches for the Toffees but the arrival of Theo Walcott last week pushed him further down the pecking order at Goodison Park and he is now looking for a fresh start at Turf Moor.

“I think I’ve still got a lot to offer. I am only 30 and I still want to play at the highest level,” the former England international, who missed the final three months of last season after mental health issues said.

“I have missed a bit of football in the last year or so and I just want to get back and play as much as possible.

“I’ve never had an easy game against Burnley and this year they have done fantastic. They deserve to be where they are.

“Hopefully I can help the side continue that and have a good end to the season.”

Meanwhile, Burnley manager  Sean Dyche has signed a new long-term contract to extend his stay at Turf Moor.

Dyche has put pen to paper on a new deal running until June, 2022, along with assistant manager Ian Woan and first-team coach Tony Loughlan.

Dyche, 46, has been in charge of the Clarets since the end of October, 2012 and has led the club to two promotions to the Premier League as one of Burnley’s most successful modern-day managers. “I am quite young in management terms. I am still learning and still improving, I believe, so for my personal reasons, as well, I think it’s the right place to be,” said Dyche.
