Paul Robinson Signs For Burnley
Burnley Football Club have today confirmed the signing of experienced goalkeeper Paul Robinson on a deal until the end of the season. The former England international has been a free agent since leaving Blackburn Rovers at the end of the 2014/15 campaign.
Robinson earned 41 caps for his country and is vastly experienced, having made 372 top-flight appearances and keeping 86 clean sheets for Leeds United, Blackburn Rovers and Tottenham Hotspur.
Now thirty-six years old, Robinson will provide competition for Tom Heaton and Matt Gilks, who is currently out for several weeks with an elbow injury.
Speaking about signing for Burnley Paul Robinson said, “After having a chat with Sean Dyche, he’s obviously got an injury to one of his goalkeepers and this was too good an opportunity to turn down.
I’ve been training for the last couple of months, so it’s just nice to join a fantastic football club. The manager goes about his business here very well and having spent some time with him today I can’t speak highly enough, so I’m looking forward to working with him.
I have played a lot of Premier League and Championship games and hopefully that experience can help people in and around the club. I’m just looking forward to getting training and using that experience. There are three very good goalkeepers here now and it would be nice to get some game time under my belt if called upon.”
