SIGNING: Lukas joins on loan

Goalkeeper Lukas Jensen joins the Reds from Burnley on a season-long loan

28 June 2022

Accrington Stanley have today completed the signing of goalkeeper Lukas Jensen from Burnley on a season-long loan.

Born in Denmark, Jensen began his career with FC Helsingør before signing for Hellerup IK in 2019.

Following a successful trial period, the 23-year-old then arrived at Turf Moor later that year and was named on the first team bench on three occasions during Project Restart.

The goalkeeper, who played against the Reds in April's Lancashire FA Senior Cup semi-final, has also had loan spells with Bolton Wanderers, Kórdrengir and Carlisle United.

John Coleman said: "He has been someone we have been looking at for a while and he has impressed us.

"He will be a valuable asset and will challenge Toby Savin and Liam Isherwood for the No 1 spot.

"Lukas is a young lad, he has been on loan at Carlisle and looking to make the next step. He commands his area well and I think he could play for Burnley's first team one day."

Jensen added: "When I got the opportunity to come to Accrington, it was a no-brainer for me.

"I spoke to the gaffer and my goalie coach at Burnley and know it’s the right move for me."

Lukas' first interview video will be uploaded to the club's official YouTube channel later today, CLICK HERE to find out more!

The move is subject to EFL and FA ratification.
