The 19 year old, Republic of Ireland under-21 international signed a loan deal for an initial 28-day spell after agreeing to the move on emergency loan deadline day(Thursday 24th March 2011). It is hoped the loan can be extended until the end of the season.
Duffy joined Everton's Academy as a 16-year-old. Progressing through the ranks he made his first-team debut for the Toffees in a Europa League tie in December, 2009. He was named as Everton's reserve team player of the year before suffering a freakish life-threatening injury on international duty last May. During a training ground incident he severed an artery near his liver during a match between the Republic of Ireland development squad and the Ireland amateur side after colliding with goalkeeper Adrian Walsh. He had to undergo life saving surgery at the Mater Hospital after damaging his liver but was discharged six days later after making a full recovery.
In the 2010 pre-season though he returned and was a regular for the reserves at Goodison Park. David Moyes also selected him eight times on the bench at first-team level during 2010-11 before the loan deal with Burnley.
He made his debut for the Clarets in the 2-1 home defeat against Ipswich Town on Saturday 2nd April 2011. He made the starting eleven replacing Clarke Carlisle in the centre of defence.
