The Wales international has penned the terms on offer at Turf Moor after Leicester landed veteran shot-stopper Kevin Pressman from Sheffield Wednesday.
The Clarets had agreed the deal with Leicester, worth around £25,000, several weeks ago but had to wait for The Foxes to bring in a replacement.
With Pressman on board, Micky Adams gave the signal for Coyne to complete his switch to the fellow Championship side.
Coyne will now join his new team-mates for training on Monday and Burnley boss Steve Cotterill is happy to have finally clinched the 30-year-old's signature.
"Everything is now agreed with Leicester City and Danny will be joining us to begin training on Monday," Cotterill told the club's official website.
"I'm delighted to have him in the squad and it's taken a while to get him here.
"He is a terrific goalkeeper and one that I earmarked to come in here, so we're pleased to have him.
"We needed another goalkeeper, because we only had Brian (Jensen) before and Danny is an international, who will be fighting to be number one for Wales this season.
"He is a very good signing for us.
"To be fair to Leicester, they had to find another goalkeeper before they could let Danny leave.
"I had the word of both Micky Adams and Dave Bassett that the deal would go through though and some things are worth waiting for, such as Danny."
