Vokes signs new Burnley FC deal

Lancashire Telegraph: Sam Vokes Sam Vokes

BURNLEY striker Sam Vokes has signed a two-year contract extension, committing his future to the Clarets until 2017.

The Wales international is just one away from a career best goals return after scoring his 11th of the campaign - and first in the cup - in a narrow 4-3 defeat to boyhood club Southampton on Saturday.

His 12-goal haul for Bournemouth in the 2007/08 season earned Vokes a big money move to Wolves the following summer.

He went on to lead a nomadic existence, which included a loan spell with Burnley in the 2011/12 season under former Cherries boss Eddie Howe.

But Vokes made Turf Moor his permanent home the following July.

The targetman spent much of last season playing understudy to top scorer Charlie Austin, but has flourished following Austin’s summer sale to QPR, forming a formidable partnership with Danny Ings.

Between them they have scored 31 of the Clarets’ 47 league and cup goals this season, helping to fire Burnley to second in the Championship by contributing 26 of the club’s 36 league goals between them.

Good to see there are no comments from the Chicken Farmers down the M65 - another prediction bites the dust

Yes it is only, its over shadowed by the two venky fc signings. Guess its pot calling kettle time, but then they were on loan, and never played a part in the up/down first half of the season eh?

Next you'll be telling me that Burnley is 27th in the naughty fans league table, with 31 banning orders for last season, but wait can you tell me who is 26th................
... No it can't be not the club with fans who are so well behaved, oh yes, it does say No dads.

As we all know Vokes' contract isn't worth the paper and all that. When someone offers him some proper money he'll be off anyway.

Yeah you sandal-wearing numpties can just live in hope eh?

You sign two players unwanted by their current clubs and they have propelled you to the dizzy heights of mid-table and you criticise us for signing a player that is part of THE most lethal strike partnership in the country.

Your banter is becoming embarrassing - just like your team, fans, owners, monotone manager, league position, lack of goals aside from Rhodes, finances etc etc.
