Burnley have confirmed three senior players will leave Turf Moor this summer.

However, talks are ongoing with Peter Crouch whose deal is up next month after his January switch from Stoke City.

The Clarets have also confirmed that winger Aaron Lennon and full-back Phil Bardsley have both had options in their existing contracts activated to keep them at the club next season.

However, defender Stephen Ward and goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard have not had their contracts renewed, while striker Jon Walters is retiring from football due to injury.

Sean Dyche revealed Ward’s departure last week, with his five year stay at the Clarets coming to an end.

The 33-year-old, who signed from Wolves, leaves  after 113 appearances for the club, but only 11 of those came this season, and none since January.

His former Republic of Ireland team-mate Walters and Denmark international Lindegaard leave after two seasons with Burnley.

Midfielder Steven Defour, whose extension was activated at the end of the 2017/18 season, has missed the final months of the season through injury but is under contract at the club until 2020.

The rest of Sean Dyche’s senior squad is also still under contract.

Elsewhere, Under-23s’ top scorer Daniel Agyei has been offered a new deal, as has midfielder Aiden O’Neill following his successful season-long loan with Australian A-League side Central Coast Mariners.

Winger Tunde Bayode and midfielder Christian N’Guessan, regulars in Steve Stone’s Under-23s set-up, have also been offered new contracts, along with defender Scott Wilson, who gets a first professional contract.

Under-23s’ captain Anthony Glennon and defensive colleague Ali Koiki, who have both been on the bench for the first team this season, have both previously had contract clauses activated to extend their stays, along with midfielder Mace Goodridge.

But the club have announced that Ntumba Massanka and goalkeepers Conor Mitchell and Adam Bruce will all leave this summer, as will defender Ed Cook.

A club spokesman said: “Burnley Football Club thanks all those leaving for their contribution during their time at Turf Moor and wishes them all well in their future careers.”
