Clarets Take Option to Extend Midfielders Contract

Clarets Extend Jeff Hendrick Contract 

Sean Dyche this afternoon confirmed the Clarets have extended the contract of midfielder Jeff Hendrick to ensure he stays part of the Turf Moor plans after securing his services for a further twelve months. Hendrick’s current contract is due to expire at the end of season, but Burnley have activated an option for an additional year’s stay.

The Dublin born midfielder has made 91 appearances for the Clarets since signing from Derby County in the 2016 summer transfer window. He started 29 Premier League games last season helping Sean Dyche’s side finish seventh in the Premier League to qualify for Europe. The versatile midfield man who has operated centrally and in a more attacking role so far this season has made 13 top-flight appearances to earn his extended stay.

Speaking about extending Hendrick’s contract manager Sean Dyche said, “He’s done well for us, we have asked a lot of him and used him in a number of different positions that sometimes aren’t natural to him and over time he has delivered good performances.”

Meanwhile, the Burnley boss has confirmed that Aaron Lennon has undergone knee surgery which will keep the winger out for an unspecified time. The former England International sustained cartilage damage in last Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at former club Tottenham Hotspur. “It’s a tidying up situation, he is happy with it and the surgeon is happy with it. Hopefully it will be a straight-forward recovery, albeit some time.”
