Burnley are now preparing for life back in the Premier League following a successful campaign in the second tier.

Vincent Kompany’s side were dominant as they earned a league title triumph to go with their automatic promotion to the top flight.

The Clarets earned an impressive 101 points to clinch a 10-point lead over Sheffield United.

Who will leave Burnley this summer?

With the Championship season now over, we look at the players Burnley have confirmed will be departing Turf Moor ahead of the next campaign…

Ashley Barnes

The striker has played his final game for the club, having already secured his next move to Norwich City on a two-year deal.

Barnes spent nine years with the Clarets, initially joining from Brighton in the 2014 January transfer window.

The now 33-year-old helped Burnley achieve automatic promotion in his first season with the club.

Barnes also played a crucial role in cementing the Lancashire club as a Premier League side for six seasons under Sean Dyche, scoring 37 goals during that period.

Lowton’s contract with Burnley has not been renewed, ending his eight-year stint with the Clarets.

Will Norris

Norris also spent the second half of the season out on loan, joining Peterborough United in the January window.

The goalkeeper spent three years with Burnley before signing for the Posh, but won’t be returning to Turf Moor next season.

The 29-year-old is set to become a free agent after Burnley confirmed the decision to not renew his current contract.

Lowton spent the second half of this season out on loan with struggling Huddersfield Town, making just eight league appearances for the team.

The Terriers secured an 18th place finish in the Championship, avoiding relegation with a good run of form to end the campaign.

But the 33-year-old won’t be returning to Turf Moor following the end of this loan spell.

Is Lukas Jensen leaving Burnley?

Jensen spent most of his time with Burnley out on loan, joining the likes of Bolton Wanderers, Korderengir and Carlisle United over the years.

The goalkeeper spent this campaign at Accrington Stanley, playing 29 times as the team suffered relegation to League Two.

Jensen’s four-year stint with Burnley has come to an end following the conclusion of his current contract.

The 24-year-old never made an appearance for the club, having initially signed from Danish side HIK in the summer of 2019 under Sean Dyche.

Done deal: Burnley unlucky man joins Norwich

 

Shane Duffy, who played once for Burnley against Ipswich Town while on loan from Everton, has left Fulham and signed a three-year contract with Championship club Norwich City.

It’s over twelve years since that one appearance for the Clarets. He arrived on loan from Everton and went straight into the home game against Ipswich when he partnered Andre Bikey at the back. We lost 2-1; Duffy didn’t play again in Eddie Howe’s team. Michael Duff replaced him for the next game at Leicester which ended in a 4-0 defeat.

That was Duffy’s introduction to league football. Prior to that, he’d played in two Europa League games for Everton in the previous season. Further loans at Scunthorpe and Yeovil followed and he lined up for Yeovil on the day we beat them at Huish Park in January 2014.

The following summer saw him make a permanent move to Blackburn. He was there for just over two years and left with some dramatic performances early in a season that saw our local rivals managed by Owen Coyle on their march to League One. In his final two games for them, Duffy scoed three times, all of them own goals, and got himself two yellow and one red card.

By the time the summer window closed he moved to Brighton who he finally left at the beginning of this calendar year. Surplus to requirements under their last two managers, he spent the entire 2021/22 season on loan at Celtic and last summer moved to Fulham on a season long loan.

By January, Fulham were keen to get the loan terminated. He’d made just three substitute appearances in the Premier League and no longer required. Brighton didn’t recall him and so Fulham, who needed the loan slot to bring in Cedric Soares from Arsenal, were forced to make his move to Craven Cottage a permanent one to allow the Soares loan signing.

He made one more appearance, coming on as a 77th minute substitute against Leicester. Fulham won 5-3 but they led 5-1 at the time he came on.

Yesterday, he left Fulham and signed for Norwich on a three-year deal from 1st July. As was the case at Blackburn, he is expected to partner Grant Hanley in defence.
