Kevin Long extends Turf Moor stay
Kevin Long, Burnley’s longest serving player, has today signed a new deal that will keep him at Turf Moor for the next three years.
It adds to the fantastic end he had last season when he got his first Premier League start and then went on to win his first caps for the Republic of Ireland.
He said today: “I am delighted. It’s been going on for quite a while so it’s nice to get it signed and look forward to the next three years. It caps what’s been a fabulous three months for me. Coming into the team at the end of the summer was a dream.
“Here at Burnley, we’ve secured another season in the Premier League, so this is a club going in the right direction and it’s a pleasure to be a part of that. I’ve been here a long time and probably haven’t played as much as I’d have liked, so hopefully in the next three years I can play a lot more and go from strength to strength.”
Long was signed in January 2010 by Owen Coyle. He had to wait until October 2012 to make his debut, as a substitute against Sheffield Wednesday, and has now played a total of 31 league and cup games for the Clarets.Share this page :
