Dunne Ends Hearts Stay

Defender officially back with Clarets and available for next challenge

7 January 2019

Jimmy Dunne is officially back at Burnley after reaching the end of his loan spell at Hearts.

The central defender returned to the Clarets for treatment after sustaining an ankle injury at the end of November.

And his stay with the Scottish Premier League side has now expired, making him available for the Clarets or another potential loan move.

Dunne’s stay at Tynecastle was a major success as he racked up 14 starting appearances for Craig Levein’s side, scoring twice.

The 21-year-old, who signed a new contract at Turf Moor last summer before moving north of the border towards the end of August, helped Hearts enjoy a flying start to their league campaign and also reach the semi-finals of the Scottish League Cup.

Dunne, who helped Accrington Stanley win the League Two title during a loan spell with the Reds in the second half of last season, also received a first call-up to the full Republic of Ireland squad for their Nations League qualifier in Denmark in November.
