New Turf Moor deal for Matt Lowton
Matt Lowton has extended his stay at Turf Moor by another two years having signed a deal today that takes him up to the end of the 2019/20 season.
Lowton arrived at Burnley in the summer of 2015 as a replacement for Kieran Trippier, but a pre-season injury ruled him out for a number of weeks and he then had to wait to win his place. That came just before Christmas when he got his first start in a 4-0 win at Charlton.
He’s made a further 52 starts since to add to the two substitute appearances he’d made previously and he’s also scored one goal for us, that in the 5-0 win at MK in January of last year.
Having completed the signing, he said: “I’m delighted to extend my stay here. I had a year left, but when the club and the manager approached me about a new deal it was a no-brainer for me.
“I’ve enjoyed every minute of my time at Burnley and want to hopefully play my part in keeping the club in the Premier League and beyond. I feel like I’m really enjoying my football at the moment and probably playing as well I have at any time in my career.
“Much of that is down to the lads in the team because everyone here works so hard for each other and that’s been the secret to our success. The club is on the up and you can see that on the pitch and also behind the scenes, like the new training ground, which is just about as good as it gets.
“I experienced a good set-up at Aston Villa but this is Premier League quality and we are looking forward to that helping us take things forward.”Share this page :
