Clarets Goalkeeper Rejects New Contract

Tom Heaton Rejects Clarets Contract Extension

Burnley could be forced into seeking buyers for Tom Heaton after the England International goalkeeper turned down a new contract. Heaton, who made a positive impact upon regaining his place in the lineup after a lengthy spell out with injury, will enter the final year of his deal next month.

Heaton made his 200th appearance for Burnley on the final day of last season and was effectively England’s No 2 behind Jordan Pickford at this month’s Nations League finals. Yet the Burnley captain faces stiff competition to remain first-choice in Sean Dyche’s side, with Nick Pope – another England international – having signed a new long-term deal in May and Joe Hart also on the books.

The latter also has one year to run on his contract, and Burnley are unlikely to risk both experienced goalkeepers departing on frees next summer. Clubs including Bournemouth and Aston Villa have been credited with interest in Heaton.
