Goalkeeper Diego Penny leaves Burnley by mutual consent

Penny has now returned to play in his native Peru

Burnley keeper Diego Penny has left the Championship club by mutual consent.

The 26-year-old Peru international signed from Coronel Bolognesi in 2008 but made just four appearances, including one in the Premier League.

He told the club website: "I will never forget Burnley because it was a great step up for me.

"It didn't happen for me but I do think I pushed Brian [Jensen, first-choice keeper] to be the best he could and Burnley have benefited from that."

Penny added: "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."
