LONG-serving Claret Michael Duff is to be rewarded for his part in Burnley's promotion season with the offer of a new 12-month deal, taking the defender into his 11th season at Turf Moor.

Junior Stanislas is also understood to have been offered new terms, along with Danny Lafferty.

But Keith Treacy, David Edgar, Brian Stock and third-choice goalkeeper Nick Liversedge have been released from the club at the end of their contracts.

Edgar is the longest serving of the exiting trio, having signed under Owen Coyle from Newcastle United ahead of Burnley's last Premier League season in 2009.

The Canada international had a 12-month option on his current deal but the Clarets have decided not to take it up.

Stock has ended two years with the Clarets.

The midfielder was signed by Eddie Howe from Doncaster Rovers in 2011 in a deal worth around £100,000, reuniting the former Bournemouth team-mates.

He made 29 appearances in his first season, but became more of a squad player this term, playing in 13 league and cup games.

Treacy was also signed by Howe, from Preston, but was given a new lease of life with the change of manager in October 2012.

However, the Republic of Ireland international winger has not been offered new terms. He has, though, been offered the chance to return on trial in the summer.

Liversedge was a summer signing from Whitby Town after impressing on trial in the previous campaign.

Young right back Luke O'Neill is thought to have had a one-year option activated.
