“The players, the staff and the supporters, who stood by us every week and every game, thank you so much to you all.

“My time was only brief at Turf Moor and it didn’t end how we would have hoped, but I loved being a part of this special club and it will always hold a place in my heart.

“Good luck for the new season and pushing back to getting where you belong. #UTC"

Hennessey’s departure leaves the club with Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Will Norris as senior goalkeepers, although they are keen on Anderlecht’s Bart Verbruggen and Manchester City’s Arijanet Muric, and have been linked with Plymouth’s Michael Cooper.
