BURNLEY midfielder Mace Goodridge has signed an extended contract at Turf Moor.

The 20-year-old, who has been named on the bench for the Premier League games at Manchester United and Tottenham earlier this season, is now tied to the Clarets until the summer of 2021.

Goodridge, 20, originally started out at Manchester City, before spending two years at Newcastle United.

After an initial trial spell with the Clarets towards the end of the 2017/18 season, Goodridge then signed a first professional deal at Turf Moor, and has since become a regular for the club’s Under-23s side.

His progress was only halted by a knee injury last season but he has been fit and firing for the Clarets’ Development squad since September.

“I’m really happy, to get it over the line, I’ve worked hard to get back from my injury, so I’m delighted to get it done,” Goodridge said.

“Obviously, I have been in and around the first team a couple of times and that’s where I want to be.

“You can see how well the first team lads have done, come through a tough patch against top teams recently and I want to be a part of that someday.

“I really enjoy being here, it’s my third season here now and I’m delighted to be here for a fourth come pre-season.

“And although I have been to a few clubs, I really feel like I have found a home here and I’m ready to kick on.”
