More of Mee at Burnley
It seems to have been a long running story, one that went on almost throughout last season, that Ben Mee would not sign a new Turf Moor deal. Ben himself rubbished one report a few months ago yet the speculation continued.
Today, that speculation can come to an end. Ben Mee has committed to Burnley with a new contract that will see him remain at Turf Moor for a further three years with a further one year option. Having first joined us in the summer of 2011, initially on loan, that will take him up to ten years as a Burnley player.
When Dean Marney left in May, Mee became our second longest serving player behind Kevin Long. He’s already made 230 league appearances for the Clarets with all but six of them starts. Only 35 players in post-war football have played more league games for us.
He also captained the side for much of last season and is expected to wear the captain’s armband again tomorrow night in Istanbul.
It’s further good news for the Clarets defensively with Matt Lowton having also agreed a new deal recently and, of course, with the capture three days ago of Ben Gibson from Middlesbrough.Share this page :
