Former Clarets goalkeeper Danny Coyne has today made a step up again to the Championship joining Middlesbrough on a two year deal from Tranmere Rovers.
He signed for Burnley FC in the summer of 2006 for a fee of £25,000 from Leicester City.The Welsh International keeper though always seemed to struggle at Turf Moor picking up two serious long term injuries that kept him sidelined.
Coyne left Burnley at the end of his contract at the close of the 2006-07 season before signing for his original club, League 1, Tranmere Rovers, in July 2007 on a free transfer.
He did however impress at Prenton Park and became the club's first choice goalkeeper, missing just five league games in his first season back.
Coyne this season has played nearly every match recording 20 clean sheets to secure the division`s Golden Glove prize.
Good to see him move back up to a higher division again and he will now have to challenge Brad Jones for the Number One jersey in Middlesbrough's first season in the Championship since being relegated at the end of 2008/9.
'Danny is an excellent goalkeeper,' Gareth Southgate told BBC Tees.
'He has played at the highest level with Wales and has great experience. He is the right type of character.'
Coyne now 35,said of his move:
'Leaving Tranmere was a hard decision but joining Middlesbrough was a no-brainer for me. I came up and met the manager and goalkeeper coach Stephen Pears, saw the training facilities and made my mind up.Gareth has told he wants us to win the Championship and get the club back in the Premier League where we belong. I've played most of my career in this division so I know it very well and I think we've got every chance of going up. I feel as fit as I've ever been so I'm coming here to push Brad for a first team place and do all I can to contribute towards us winning promotion.'
Well done Danny and good luck!
