Aaron Lennon On The Verge Of Completing Move Away From Everton
Burnley have agreed a deal to sign Everton winger Aaron Lennon.
With the £30 million arrival of Theo Walcott confirmed earlier this week, Lennon's first-team opportunities looked hard to come by.
Premier League one-season wonders:
The search to find a new club hasn't lasted long though, with David Ornstein from BBC Sport, among others, reporting the news.

Exclusive: Burnley have agreed a deal with Everton to sign Aaron Lennon for an undisclosed fee. Personal terms done but 30yo winger still needs to undergo medical. Lennon scored 7 goals in 63 apps but is surplus to requirements following Theo Walcott arrival #twitterclarets #EFC

Lennon has made 63 appearances for Everton after joining in 2015, scoring seven goals in that period.
It would appear a tidy bit of business from Sean Dyche and Burnley, who fended off competition from Newcastle to secure his services.
With Lennon and Spurs loanee Georges-Kevin Nkoudou on the flanks, the high-flying Clarets now have real pace in wide area - something they were lacking previously.
Watch: Best free transfers:
As for Lennon, it's great to see him get a very good move, particularly after how he overcame his mental health problems in 2017.
