Hennings Returns to Germany

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.
