Fleetwood Town have signed Dean Marney on a two-year deal, according to BBC.

The former Burnley midfielder has joined Fleetwood Town on a free transfer, putting ink to paper on a two-year deal.

The 34-year-old left Turf Moor after spending eight years at the club during which he made 202 appearances.

Marney who also played for Tottenham Hotspur and Hull City in his career so far, teams up with former Burnley teammate Joey Barton who’s the current manager of Fleetwood Town.

Marney would have disappointed to leave Burnley as the club are now participating in the UEFA Europa League but with game time few and far-in-between for the 34-year-old, a chance to play for the Cod Army was something he couldn’t turn down.

Marney could make his debut for the club in their League One opener against AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.

Joey Barton was appointed as manager of Fleetwood Town before the end of last season and will be hoping to lead the Cod Army to a successful League One campaign.
