Burnley secure four senior players to new contracts


Burnley have secured four senior players to new contracts. Matt Lowton, Kevin Long, Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Erik Pieters have all signed contract extensions at Burnley.

Lowton, Long and Gudmundsson have signed new two-year deals to extend their stays until June 2023.

Left-back Erik Pieters has also prolonged his time at Turf Moor after an option to extend his contract until the end of the 2021/22 season was activated by the club.

The quartet follow midfielders Jack Cork, Ashley Westwood and club captain Ben Mee in signing new deals to commit to the Clarets this season.

“It’s an important time with the transition of one chairman and owner to the next chairman and owners to make sure we’re planning – and I’ve said this all along – not just outside by recruitment but inside as well,” manager Sean Dyche told the club’s website.

“We have to make sure good people, good players and good servants to the club remain so and in agreeing these contracts, they’re certainly putting their front foot forward and saying ‘yes, we want to be part of it, we enjoy the challenge and we want to take it on’, and that’s the mentality we need.”
