Rouwen Hennings Joins Fortuna Dusseldorf
Burnley Football Club have today confirmed the German striker Rouwen Hennings has left Turf Moor to sign for Bundesliga Two side Fortuna Dusseldorf on a free transfer. The striker spent last season on loan with Fortuna Dusseldorf, scoring nine league goals in a mid-table finish.
Hennings, who had 12-months left on his deal with the Clarets after joining from side Karlsruhe in August 2015, has cut his ties to return to his homeland on a permanent basis, signing a three-year deal.
In his debut season at Turf Moor, Hennings made 27 appearances and scored his first goal in claret and blue in a 2-2 draw against Cardiff City in November, 2015. He then followed that up with the opening goal in a 2-1 victory over eventual Championship runners-up Middlesbrough in a third-round FA Cup tie.
