Sean Dyche predicts bright future for Tendayi Darikwa at Burnley

31 July 2015

Burnley boss Sean Dyche believes that new recruit Tendayi Darikwa has a bright future ahead of him at Turf Moor.

The Clarets have completed a deal to bring the 23-year-old to Lancashire from Chesterfield, with the right-back penning a three-year deal at the club.

Dyche feels that Darikwa’s aim should now be to break straight into his side’s first-team, with the 44-year-old boss enthusiastic about the impact that his latest signing can make.

“We are delighted to add Tendayi to the squad,” Dyche said to Burnley’s official site.

“He is someone we have had our eye on for a while and after playing against Chesterfield last weekend, his performance confirmed our thoughts and made the decision for us.

"He is definitely one who can push for a place in the team now, but also one for the future because we are confident we can improve him as a player because he has a great desire to learn."

Darikwa made 125 senior appearances for Chesterfield after progressing from the Spireites’ youth team, scoring nine times, and was a winner of The Football League's Young Player of the Month award back in December 2013.
