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.
