George Boyd Rejects Contract Extension
George Boyd is consider leaving Turf Moor in the summer, after rejecting a one-year contract extension from the Club. The midfielder who is out of contract in the summer has a number of clubs from the Premier League and the Championship interested in signing him on a free transfer in June.
Boyd produced a man-of-the-match display and scored the only goal in Tuesday’s victory over Stoke City that moved Burnley away from the relegation zone, however the former Scotland international has made it clear that he wants a two year deal instead of the 12 month extension he has been offered.
Boyd has been a mainstay of Sean Dyche’s team since signing from Hull City for £3M in 2014, making 110 appearances out of a possible 115 were he regularly covers most of the pitch. Club-record signings Robbie Brady and Johann Berg Gudmundsson have been brought to Turf Moor to add competition in the wide positions, however Boyd remains a fixture.
Speaking about the situation Sean Dyche said, ‘There are ongoing conversations with varying people and that’s the nature of the business. He’s one of many we’ve been speaking with to know what the script is and know they’re settled.”
