'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Quids in for a Penny as Appeal Board say Yes!

Burnley have completed a deal for Peruvian goalkeeper Diego Penny after being granted a work permit at today's Home Office hearing.

Owen Coyle and Barry Kilby attended the Home Office appeal in Sheffield this Friday lunchtime.

The panel quickly approved our application to the delight of Coyle who said:

'We are absolutely delighted with the outcome.

'The Chairman and I attended the hearing and the panel were very receptive to what we had to say

'I think they saw that Diego Penny could have a big future at Burnley Football Club and we thank them for their decision'

Barry Kilby commented further

'I think we put forward a convincing case for Diego and we are delighted that the panel saw fit to agree with our opinion that he could be a very big player for Burnley Football Club.'

Penny earlier this week signed a three-year deal at Turf Moor for an undisclosed fee subject to the appeal decision.

There is no indication yet whether the 6ft 5in stopper will now be given the Number 1 jersey.
