Clarets boss Sean Dyche is to make Australian goalkeeper Alex Cisak his second capture of the summer.

After landing Tom Heaton from Bristol City, Dyche has bolstered his goalkeeping department by snapping up the 24-year-old from Oldham Athletic on a two-year deal.

Polish-born Cisak left Boundary Park after the Latics chose not to take up their option of extending his stay.

The former Accrington Stanley keeper made 60 appearances in two years with Oldham, but featured only 13 times this season, as Dean Bouzanis established himself as the Latics’ first-choice.

It means Dyche has now replaced both Lee Grant, who has rejoined former club Derby County, and long-serving Brian Jensen, who was released after 10 years with the club.

Jon Stewart has also been released without making an appearance in two years, with his place, as a development-type keeper, expected to be filled by Whitby Town stopper Nick Liversedge.

Cisak will sign officially on June 24th, the day before Burnley return to pre-season training at Gawthorpe.

An Australia Under 20 international, Cisak came through the ranks at Leicester City, and has had spells on loan withOxford United, Tamworth, Accrington and Portsmouth.
