Jenkins, who is part of the ALK Capital investment group, was given a tour of the club's historic stadium alongside Executive Chairman Alan Pace before witnessing the Clarets take on current Premier League winners Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Jenkins, a 12-year NFL veteran who is still playing for the New Orleans Saints, owns a minority ownership in the team through the ALK Capital investment firm, which took over the club in December.

Jenkins is a highly respected and successful businessman in his native United States.

Jenkins believes the club is the right fit for him and the values that are central to all his business operations, speaking about his interest in Burnley during his visit.

“I’m excited to enter this new relationship, as Burnley FC is known for its tenacity, work ethic, good sportsmanship and efficient operational infrastructure. It’s a great fit for me personally and my company to invest in the growth of the sport alongside a historic organization that aligns with our company values."

“I think the club’s doing a great job with some of the updates around the stadium and to see the vision of where they want to go in creating a venue that’s not only a great place to come and watch a game is really exciting.”

Alan Pace, Chairman of Burnley FC, added:

“It was great to welcome Malcolm and his team to Turf Moor at the weekend and give them their first live taste of Premier League action.
