Peacock-Farrell extends his Burnley contract
Bailey Peacock-Farrell joined the Clarets in the summer of last year from Leeds United on a deal until 2023 with a one year option.
Today that option has been taken up with the Northern Ireland international now committed to the Clarets until the summer of 2024 and still the option of a further year in the club’s favour .
Still to make his first team debut, he said on signing the deal: “I’m delighted and it didn’t take long to do because it was a no brainer The discussions started a couple of weeks before we came back, which was nice for me to hear that the club are pleased with how I’ve done so far. I’m happy with how things have gone so far, as well, so it’s been a perfect for both of us.
“I haven’t managed to play in the Premier League at the moment but that’s the long term goal of mine, as with everyone here. What I can do is train hard and train well and I still have my international games to show what I can do and the club are pleased with that and how I’ve progressed.
“I certainly feel like I’ve come on leaps and bounds since I came here. Like everyone said coming here, it’s the easiest dressing room to come and fit into and I couldn’t have asked for any more from the lads.”
He ended last season on the bench and will be hoping that continues to be the case when we kick off the new season at Leicester. “I’m one step closer now,” he added. “Obviously Popey’s there and rightly so. He’s had an incredible season, but I’m here to help support him but also challenge him because we both want to do the same thing.
“It’s one step closer, which is certainly better. We’ve got the cup games and anything can happen on that and I will still hopefully get my international games in, so it’s quite a quick start to the season.”Follow UpTheClarets:
