Burnley trigger extension in Robbie Brady's contract

Clarets boss, Sean Dyche, says it was a no-brainer to keep the Irish international for an extra year.

ROBBIE BRADY IS set to remain at Burnley until June 2021 after the Premier League club exercised a 12-month option on his contract.

Brady’s original deal was due to run out this summer but he’ll remain part of Sean Dyche’s set-up for at least one more season. 

The 28-year-old, who has 46 caps for the Republic of Ireland, returned to training with the Clarets earlier this week ahead of the planned resumption of the Premier League in the coming weeks. 

Brady has featured 63 times for Burnley since his move from Norwich in January 2017 which was for a club record fee at the time.  

A club statement said: “Extending his stay at Turf Moor will allow the former Manchester United and Hull City man the chance to reproduce the kind of form that saw him light up the league as the Clarets made their advance on Europe in 2017/18.

“Brady was an ever-present starter in the opening 15 games as Dyche’s men laid the foundations for their seventh-place finish before suffering a knee injury at Leicester City which curtailed his campaign and kept him sidelined for 10 months.” 

Dyche added: “He’s had a bit of a tough time with injuries, unfortunately.

“Hopefully, this break will give him another chance to get another block of fitness in to be ready for when this starts again.

“In the meantime, we have taken an option on him because we thought it was the right thing to do for now and for going forwards for next season.”
