Robbie Brady Extends Clarets Contract
Burnley Football Club have this afternoon confirmed that midfielder Robbie Brady has extended his contract with the club and will stay at Turf Moor until the summer of 2012. The Clarets have exercised the twelve month option on his contract to keep the Irishman as an important member of Sean Dyche’s squad.
Brady joined the Clarets as the club’s then-record buy from Norwich City in January 2017 and has since made sixty-three appearances for the club, scoring three goals. Injury, along with the emergence of Dwight McNeil as an option on Burnley’s left wing have limited his game time for periods of his Clarets’ career. However the Dublin born winger has been capped forty-six times by the Republic of Ireland and he remains a key component of Sean Dyche’s plans.
Brady returned to training with the rest of the Clarets’ squad earlier this week ahead of an intended resumption of the Premier League programme later this summer. Extending his stay at Turf Moor will allow the former Manchester United and Hull City man the chance to reproduce the kind of form that saw him light up the league as the Clarets made their advance on Europe in 2017/18.
