LUKAS Jensen has gone out on loan to Iceland in search of the first-team football he could not find at Wanderers.

The 22-year-old keeper has been sent by Burnley to Second Division side Kordrengir on a two-month deal.

Jensen spent the last few months of the season on loan at the UniBol but did not make a first team appearance.

The Dane was named on the bench on several occasions during the run-in but played as understudy to Matt Gilks as Bolton clinched promotion to League One.

Jensen has timed the move to coincide with the start of the Icelandic season. His contract at Burnley is due to expire this summer, although the Premier League club does have an option to extend by a further 12 months.

Clarets goalkeeping coach Billy Mercer believes Jensen’s time at Bolton was useful but the chance to now play more first team football will help his progression.

"It's a good move for him and a chance to play some competitive football," he told Burnley’s official website.

"Being at Bolton around the first-team environment in a promotion race has been a really valuable experience for him and this will be another one.

"It's credit to him that he hasn't seen his family for a long time but wants to go out to another country and play over the summer.

"We'll give him a couple of weeks off afterwards and then he'll come back and we'll see what’s best for him after that."
