Jensen Agrees New Two Year Deal

Jensen Agrees New Two Year Deal

Brian Jensen has today signed a new two-year deal with the club. We would now appear to know the fate of the four players offered new deals this summer with only Robbie Blake unable to agree terms. Jensen,Duff and Thompson have now all signed new contracts.

The 35 year old Dane is now our longest serving player having made nearly 300 appearances for the club. Jensen joined Burnley on a free transfer from West Brom in June 2003 and has now been managed by Stan Ternent, Steve Cotterill, Owen Coyle and Brian Laws.

Current gaffer, Brian Laws talking about the Beast's new deal said:

"We are delighted Brian has agreed to sign the two year deal we offered.

"He is a quality goalkeeper and someone who has served this club very well with distinction.

"He is not only a great servant, but a great ambassador and even at his age, we feel Brian has good years ahead of him.

"We hope to drive him on further this summer because clearly we would like to strengthen in that area.

"It`s something we are trying our hardest to achieve so that Brian has real strong competition, which can only improve his performances for the football club."

Looks like Hennessey on loan from Wolves for a season is likely to be Jensen's soul mate. Could the Beast see off yet another challenge to his dominance? Vote in the new polll!

Interesting one. I think hennesey is a highly rated keeper. As much as I like the Beast, I do think he should be our sub keeper next season.

I still think we need a new keeper then we could sell Penny and get him off the wage bill. Good to see Laws saying we need to strengthen in that area.

I remember hearing the Beast had one of the best save-shot ratios in the prem last year (says a lot about our defence..or lack of). Great news to see he's signed! a new boss means a new keeper for him to see off lol.

As is he ever really thought about leaving. Who else is going to stop the cricket field end from falling over?

I echo your sentiments, Dale. Great minds think alike. Or, fools never differ? ;-)

Give me a few minutes guys, and you'll be able to read The Beast's own thoughts in Ze Burnley Legends thread in the forums on this site.

Good news that he's signed at last, he'll do a sound job in the championship especially with hopefully an improved defence in front of him. Hennessey is a top class keeper, have I missed something here then? Is he coming on loan or what? If he is, much as I like the Beast, he'll have a job on to keep the No 1 spot.

2 years is a good deal for Brian a good no 2 but do not think he will be first choice.

Agree with that Grimmers, though you can never write ' off the Beast'. Ah, have just done it.
