FORMER Wanderers loanee Lukas Jensen has joined Carlisle United on a season-long loan after signing a new two-year deal with the Burnley.

The 22-year-old – who stands at 6ft 6ins – heads to Brunton Park in search of regular playing time in League Two.

The towering goalkeeper spent time on loan at Wanderers last season as the Whites clinched promotion to League One, before heading overseas to Iceland with Kordrengir this summer.

He did not play a game for the Whites as Matt Gilks remained the undisputed number one after Billy Crellin’s early season struggles.

Jensen – who joined the Clarets in 2019 - has featured regularly for the Under-23 side and been named on the bench at first-team level.

“Credit to him. He sacrificed most of his summer to go and play in Iceland, which has earned him a move to a League club,” said Burnley goalkeeping coach Billy Mercer.

“He had a spell at Bolton last season, which was disappointing from a playing point of view but gave him valuable experience of being part of a promotion-winning set-up.

“And he has now a chance to gain further experience with a good move to Carlisle after earning a new contract here.”

Carlisle boss Chris Beech was pleased with to get his man.

“He joins us on loan from Burnley where he’s held in high regard,” he said.

“They see him as having a real chance in the game and there were other clubs who were also looking to take him, but both Burnley and Lukas consider us as the right destination for him.”
