Arman Taranis Joins Clarets From Danish Top Flight Club Sonderjyske
The Clarets have further strengthened their ranks of emerging talent with the capture of Denmark U19 International Arman Taranis. The striker has signed a deal at Turf Moor after impressing during a short trial spell and scoring as a substitute in a behind closed doors friendly at Preston North End on Tuesday.
Taranis joins the Clarets after leaving Danish top-flight side Sonderjyske and could make a competitive debut in the U23’s against Fulham next Monday if his international clearance arrives in time. The 19-year-old, capped seven times at international level and a prolific scorer in youth football after previously spending time with Midtjylland, is delighted with the opportunity to make a mark in English football.
Speaking about joining the Clarets Arman Taranis said, “I was a little bit surprised because I wasn’t expecting to get a call from the UK, but suddenly I was over here and had my two weeks and i think it went really well. I played against Preston North End which was a good match for me because I scored one goal and had another chance, so I was pleased with my performance.
It’s a bit unbelievable really, I never thought I would be in the UK and get a contract with Burnley Football club. I knew this club because they play in the Premier League, so it’s a very big day for me. The guys have been very welcoming, and I’ve felt like it was my home from day one. The training ground and the pitches are really nice, I have been watching the Premier League since I was a little kid, so it’s amazing. I’m just looking forward to getting started and working hard.”
Taranis, who made three senior appearances for Sonderjyske joins countryman Lukas Jensen at Turf Moor and signs following the recent arrival of France Under 19 midfielder Anthony Gomez Mancini, will initially be part of Steve Stone’s Under-23 squad and has quickly felt part of the set-up.
