Striker secures loan move to Accrington Stanley

Striker Joel Mumbongo has joined Accrington Stanley on a season-long loan.

The Clarets triggered a clause in Mumbongo’s contract this summer to extend his stay at Turf Moor.

And Burnley have now allowed the 22-year-old – who made a handful of first-team team appearances last season – to join their League One neighbours to further his senior experience.

Mumbongo – a former Sweden U19 international – joined the Clarets two years ago after impressing during a trial spell with the U23s.

He has since been a regular in Steve Stone’s side in PL2 and finished as the Clarets’ second top scorer last season with eight goals in the second tier.

Mumbongo also featured at first-team level for the first time following a number of injuries to the Clarets’ senior strikers.

The frontman, who has also previously spent time in Italy with Hellas Verona, made seven appearances from the bench for Sean Dyche's side.

His debut came against MK Dons in the FA Cup before getting a first brief taste of the Premier League as a late substitute at Chelsea at the end of January.

Mumbongo, who made three subsequent substitute appearances in the Premier League, now links up with Stanley as the Reds prepare for a fourth successive season at League One level.
