Next month will see Sean Dyche complete nine years as Burnley manager but today has come confirmation of a new four-year deal that will see him continue as Clarets’ boss until the end of the 2024/25 season.

It’s been in the pipeline for some time and Dyche himself confirmed recently that it was with the legal people, putting the final pieces to it.

He definitely appears more relaxed following the ALK takeover and working alongside the new owner who have always wanted him to remain as manager long term.

Dyche took us into the Premier League in his first full season in charge and, although we made an immediate return to the Championship, he took us straight back up again in 2016 and we’ve remained there ever since.

He said today, after his deal and a similar one for Ian Woan, had been confirmed: “It is nice to be able to get this deal completed and now look towards the future of this football club, and its constant evolution. I have a strong affinity with the area and our supporters after so many years here and I look forward to putting in the hard work needed to keep the club moving in the right direction.

“It was an important summer for us to add talent and depth to the team, but the work doesn’t stop there. As a club we’re about developing and improving players and the environment we foster here is so important to that. I am looking forward to continuing to develop that environment, work with a great group of players and coaches and to build on the positive relationship with our new ownership headed up by Alan.”

A delighted executive chairman Alan Pace said: “As I’ve said many times before, we are huge fans of what Sean has achieved at this club. We were delighted to be able to offer Sean backing in the transfer market this summer and continue the evolution of this team, as part of our wider growth strategy for the club.

“It was important for everyone to get this deal over the line and look towards the club’s future starting with this current Premier League season. I look forward to working closely with Sean and his team over the coming seasons as we seek to raise the bar and build on the solid foundations that have been laid over the past nine years.”

The season hasn’t got off to the best of starts with just one point from the opening four games, but this is superb news for our club, to know that the manager who has turned our fortunes round to such a positive extent in the last nine years will be continuing to lead us through the next four years.
