Matt Lowton Extends Clarets Contract
Burnley Football Club have this morning confirmed that defender Matt Lowton has extended his Clarets contract by signing a new long-term contract. The former Aston Villa defender, has 12-months left on his existing deal, but has now extended his stay at Turf Moor until the summer of 2020.
Lowton, who recently completed his 50th appearance for the club in tandem with his 100th Premier League appearance, insists he is looking forward to continuing his progression at Turf Moor.
Speaking about signing a new deal Matt Lowton said, “I’m delighted to extend my stay at the club, when the club and the manager approached me about a new deal it was a no-brainer for me. I’ve enjoyed every minute of my time at Burnley and want to hopefully play my part in keeping the club in the Premier League and beyond.
I feel like I’m really enjoying my football at the moment and probably playing as well I have at any time in my career. Much of that is down to the lads in the team because everyone here works so hard for each other and that’s been the secure to our success.
“The club is on the up and you can see that on the pitch and also behind the scenes, like the new training ground, which is just about as good as it gets. I experienced a good set-up at Aston Villa but this is Premier League quality and we are looking forward to that helping us take things forward.”
