Charlie Taylor Signs New Clarets Contract
Burnley Football Club have today confirmed that defender Charlie Taylor has signed a new long term contract with the club until the end of June 2024. He is the latest member of the squad to commit his long term future to manager Sean Dyche and the club.
The Yorkshire born defender who joined the Clarets from Leeds United in the summer of 2017, is ready to build on an impressive start to life in the top flight. His contract extension follows the strike partnership of Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood in signing new contracts at Turf Moor this month.
Speaking about signing an extended contract with the club Charlie Taylor said, “I’m delighted to have signed a new deal at a very stable club that has been in the Premier League now for a few years. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time here so far and I’m looking forward to the next few years ahead.
The next few years are hopefully the peak years of my career and I have signed up to spend them here at Turf Moor and hopefully the best years are to come. Ever since I made my debut in the Premier League I’ve wanted to stay here. I think once you have a taste of the Premier League you don’t want to go anywhere else.
Taylor, whose existing deal was due to run until the end of the 2021 season, chalked up his 50th Premier League appearance earlier this season. I’am now hoping for another run in the side after regaining a starting place as Dyche’s men beat West Ham United 3-0 ahead of the international break.
We have been in the Premier League since I arrived and that’s where I want to stay, I initially faced competition from Stephen Ward and now from Erik Pieters following the Dutchman’s arrival this summer. We have a very competitive squad, which bodes well for now and the future and I’m delighted that I’m going to be part of it for the future.”
