Darikwa Join Nottingham Forest

Clarets Full-Back Joins Hometown Club

Burnley Football Club have this afternoon confirmed that Tendayi Darikwa has joined his hometown club Nottingham Forest on a permanent deal following two seasons at Turf Moor.  The former Chesterfield defender, who had a year left on his deal with the Clarets, has signed a four-year contract at The City Ground for an undisclosed fee.

Darikwa made his Burnley debut against Leeds United at Elland Road on the opening day of the 2015/16 season and continued to impress in the first half of the season, making 24 league appearances and scoring his first Championship goal against Reading.

He vied for the full back spot with Matt Lowton, and although he made way for the former Aston Villa defender in the second half of the campaign, still played a prominent role in the Clarets’ promotion back to the Premier League.

Darikwa then started all five of Burnley’s cup games during the 2016/17 season, but didn’t make it past the bench on Premier League duty.
