Former Norwich City winger Robbie Brady has extended his deal at Burnley until the end of next season.
The Clarets have exercised a 12-month option in the Republic of Ireland international’s contract.
Brady, 28, joined the Clarets from Norwich for a then club-record fee of £13m in January 2017, having made 62 appearances for the Canaries, who signed him from Hull in July 2015 for £7m.
He has made 63 appearances in all competitions for Burnley, with a knee injury and the emergence of Dwight McNeil limiting his playing time.
However, Burnley said Brady remains a “key component” of manager Sean Dyche’s plans.
Brady returned to non-contact training with the rest of the Clarets squad this week as part of the Premier League’s plans to resume the season in June after the coronavirus shutdown.
Burnley are 10th in the Premier League table on 39 points, with nine games left to play.
