Burnley have signed Everton winger Aaron Lennon for an undisclosed fee.

The 30-year-old becomes the Clarets' first permanent signing of the January transfer window after ending his stint at Goodison Park.

Theo Walcott has revealed he was talked into swapping Arsenal for Everton by former England team-mate Wayne Rooney.

The 28-year-old forward, who won two FA Cups with Arsenal, completed his switch from the Gunners to Goodison Park on a three-and-a-half-year contract on Wednesday evening.

Walcott joined for an undisclosed fee but manager Sam Allardyce's second signing of the January transfer window reportedly cost £20million.

And the England international insists Rooney's advice was a major factor as he targets trophies with the Toffees.

"I had numerous chats with Wayne and that was one massive factor which really tempted me to come to Everton," Walcott told evertontv. "He told me it was a great place to play football and a club that is on the up. Those are the reasons I came here.

"This is a club with great history. The fans are brilliant, they are always passionate... and I used to find it very tough playing here.

"You want to be part of something and Wayne feels Everton are really going to improve."
