Stewart lands Clarets deal

Published Add your comment

Burnley have handed goalkeeper Jon Stewart a one-year contract following a successful trial spell at Turf Moor.

The former Bournemouth shot-stopper, 22, featured in three pre-season games as a substitute at Bury, Torquay and Oldham.

Clarets boss Eddie Howe said: "We knew Jon from our time at Bournemouth and he is a very talented young lad."

He added: "He is only 22, in goalkeeping terms he has a lot of time left in him and we feel he is a goalkeeper of huge potential."

Stewart started his career with Swindon before joining Weymouth in 2006 and then heading to Bournemouth in 2010 following a brief spell training with Portsmouth.

He made four appearances for the Cherries before becoming a free agent after leaving the south coast club in April, 2011.
