It seems as though there has been very little football news recently but this afternoon Burnley have confirmed that they have extended Republic of Ireland international Robbie Brady’s contract until the end of the 2020/21 season.

Brady joined Burnley on the last day of the January transfer window in 2017, signing a three and a half year deal with this one year option. His signing was announced to the Burnley crowd at half time of a game that saw us beat Leicester 1-0.

He made an early name for himself, scoring a sensational equaliser from a free kick against Chelsea on his home debut but it was in the 2017/18 season that he established himself as a first team regular. He’d played in every league game up to December and was in sparkling form when he suffered a serious knee injury at Leicester, never more so than in the game prior to that at Bournemouth when he scored our second goal in a 2-1 win.

It took a long time for him to recover from that injury and by the time he was fully fit he found Dwight McNeil in the way on the left hand side of the pitch. He did play in three consecutive league games in December 2018, coming back into a struggling team, but that’s the only time he’s started consecutive games since suffering the injury. He was again ruled out early this season with a rib injury but, now fully fit, has been a part of the first team squad throughout.

Still very much part of Sean Dyche’s plans, the club have now extended his deal which will keep him at Burnley until the end of next season.
