How English-born Ghanaian Dan Agyei is slowly making a career for himself

The striker was signed on loan by Tony Mowbray during the summer

Former Coventry City loan striker Dan Agyei is making good progress with parent club Burnley in the Premier League.

The 19-year-old forward has made three substitute appearance for the the Clarets, including a late cameo appearance against Manchester United on Sunday.

Agyei worked hard during his spell at the Ricoh Arena, and showed glimpses of brilliance on occasion, but he struggled to find a consistency to his game.

He scored six goals for the Sky Blues before returning to Turf Moor, including an impressive solo effort against Northampton Town in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Since his return to Lancashire, Agyei has impressed manager Sean Dyche and earned a call up to the first team, although the striker is yet to record his first Premier League goal.
