Kompany signs new Burnley deal ahead of Premier League return

Burnley manager Vincent Kompany has signed a new five-year contract at Turf Moor ahead of the club's Premier League return.

Kompany has led the Clarets back to the Premier League at the first time of asking after arriving from Belgian side Anderlecht last summer

Burnley achieved promotion back to the top flight with seven games to spare before sealing the Championship title and the 37-year-old's success has seen him linked with managerial vacancies elsewhere, including Tottenham and Chelsea.

But the former Manchester City captain has ended speculation about his immediate future by agreeing to extend his stay in Lancashire until at least 2028.

Kompany said: "Burnley and Turf Moor felt right pretty much from the start - so it also feels right to sign for the next five years.

"Together with the fans we have made Turf Moor a fortress again and continue to look forward to the future and the job of making Burnley better with every step."
