Penny drops for Clarets stopper

urnley goalkeeper Diego Penny has left the club after his contract was terminated by mutual consent.

The Peru international, 26, has made just four appearances in two years after arriving from Coronel Bologensi.

He has now returned to Peru in a bid to resurrect his career in his homeland but paid tribute to the Clarets' first-choice stopper Brian Jensen.

Penny told "I will never forget Burnley because it was a great step up for me.

"I am sad I didn't play more times. I think in football the most important thing is playing regularly but I tried to do my best every single day and Brian has been outstanding during my time with the club.

"It didn't happen for me but I do think I pushed Brian to be the best he could and Burnley have benefited from that."
