Burnley are closing in on the signing of Aaron Lennon from Everton, according to the Mail Online.
The England international has moved down the pecking order at Goodison Park following the return to fitness of Yannick Bolasie and the signing of Theo Walcott from Arsenal and is ready for a new challenge, with the Clarets beating Newcastle United in the race to secure his services.
Lennon moved to Everton initially on loan from Tottenham Hotspur in February 2015 before signing for them permanently the following summer.
In total he racked up seventy-seven appearances in all competitions, scoring nine goals having spent almost a decade with Spurs, for whom he played three hundred and sixty-four times.
Internationally, he has been capped twenty-one times for his country and featured for them at both the 2006 World Cup finals in Germany and the tournament at South Africa four years later but is yet to score.
