Hearts loan Burnley youngster Jimmy Dunne

Burnley announce that they have allowed defender Jimmy Dunne to sign a five-month loan deal with Scottish Premiership side Hearts.

Burnley have revealed that they have handed defender Jimmy Dunne a new contract, while also sending the youngster out on loan to Hearts.

Dunne is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Clarets after coming through the academy setup, but the 20-year-old spent last season representing Barrow and Accrington Stanley.

Burnley have handed Dunne a new two-year contract, but the player will look to continue his development in the Scottish Premiership with Hearts.

Dunne told the club's official website: "The new contract gives me not only security, but a chance to be part of a club that is really progressing and has been on the up for the past few seasons.

"For me to remain part of that is a massive thing for me and my development. I will still be in contact with the coaches at Burnley and this time next year hopefully they will see me in a higher position than this summer.

"Hearts have been unfortunate with injuries, particularly at the back, and I feel lucky to have been able to get this deal to hopefully help plug the gap and play in some huge games."

The Edinburgh-based club currently sit at the top of the standings.
