Burnley News: Barnes hails instant Lennon impact; Dyche explains defensive signing failure

Burnley striker Ashley Barnes is impressed by new teammate Aaron Lennon.

The former Everton winger made an impact off the bench at Newcastle on Wednesday night on his debut and Barnes said the 30-year-old had settled in well.

"Aaron's been fantastic since he came in, he's trained for a few days and he's getting to know the lads a bit more," he said.

"He's settled in right away."

Meanwhile, manager Sean Dyche has explained not signing a new defender in January.

"We can't really buy stopgaps, I don't think that helps the club," he said.

“It's difficult because you have to get the job done. We are in a favourable position but the player coming in has to be someone who can add to the group or push the group going forward in the future."
