Jones Leaves Turf Moor For Owls

16 August 2016

David Jones has left Burnley to join Sheffield Wednesday for an undisclosed fee.

The Clarets midfielder has activated a release clause in his contract and leaves Turf Moor after three years, during which he twice helped Sean Dyche’s side achieve promotion to the Premier League.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche said: “David has been fantastic over three-years at Burnley Football Club and given everything to the cause.

“He’s played a massive part in all we have achieved, and he’s activated a clause in his contract, which showed good will for a player who is 31.

“He has moved forward and we wish him well."

Last season, Jones made 43 appearances at the heart of midfield, forging an impressive partnership with the now departed Joey Barton.

And the former Wigan Athletic and Wolves playmaker started the current Premier League season last weekend, against Swansea City.

Jones, who has also previously played in the top flight for Derby County, made a total of 131 appearances for the Clarets, scoring three goals.

Burnley Football Club would like to thank David for his major contribution to the club and wish him well in his future career.
