Jimmy returns to Burnley

7th January 2019

Jimmy Dunne has returned to Burnley following the end of his loan deal.

The 21-year-old joined Hearts back in August after club captain Christophe Berra picked up in injury in the second league game of the season, leaving him sidelined for the next four months.

Jimmy featured 14 times for the Jambos and scored twice, netting against St Johnstone and Rangers.

The centre-half’s form at Tynecastle saw him win a maiden call up to the full Republic of Ireland squad.

The club would like to thank Jimmy for all of his efforts in a maroon shirt and wishes him well in the next chapter of his career.
