Burnley's Rouwen Hennings is heading back to Germany for the remainder of the season after agreeing a loan deal with Fortuna Dusseldorf.

The 28-year-old moved to Turf Moor last summer but failed to dislodge first-choice pair Sam Vokes and Andre Gray and scored just twice as Sean Dyche's side were promoted back to the top flight.

Hennings' record in the second-tier of German football earned him the move to England after he scored 18 times in 29 games to finish as the division's top scorer in 2014-15.

He will now move back to that level with Fortuna, who are currently third in the Bundesliga 2 table.
