Burnley goalkeeper Lukas Jensen has joined Carlisle United on a one-season loan after signing a new two-year contract with the Clarets.
The 22-year-old – who is 6-foot-6 – heads to Brunton Park in search of consistent game time in League Two.
“He joins us on loan from Burnley where he is held in high regard,” Carlisle boss Chris Beech said.
“They see him as having a real chance in the game and there were other clubs looking to take him as well, but Burnley and Lukas see us as the right destination for him.”
Jensen – who joined the Clarets in 2019 – has regularly played for the Under-23 team and has been named to the bench at first-team level.
The imposing goalkeeper spent time on loan at Bolton Wanders last season as the Whites clinched promotion to Ligue 1, before moving abroad with Korrengir this summer.
“Credit to him. He sacrificed most of his summer to go play in Iceland, which resulted in him being transferred to a club in the League, ”added Burnley goalkeeper coach Billy Mercer.
“He had a stint at Bolton last season which was disappointing from a game point of view, but gave him valuable experience of being part of a winning setup.
“And he now has a chance to gain more experience with a good move to Carlisle after landing a new contract here.”
Jensen could be in action tonight as Carlisle continues his preseason preparations with a trip to Chorley.
