BURNLEY forward Jay Rodriguez has signed a new two-year deal at Turf Moor.

Rodriguez came through the Clarets' youth ranks and rejoined the club in the summer of 2019.

The 32-year-old has scored seven goals this season including an important equaliser against Manchester United.

“A big thing that’s stood out for me since I’ve been here is the togetherness of the group and how we work for each other," he told the club's website.

"We’re all humble and down to earth. You look at the squad and you know you’re going to work extremely hard.

“Togetherness is definitely something you notice with the Burnley fans - they are always with you.

"They can see you working hard on the pitch, and they’ll be behind you no matter what.

“I’ve made many memories so far and hopefully I can make some more soon.

"You’ve always got to keep improving in football and make as many memories as you can.”

Rodriguez says signing a new deal was "a no brainer" and is excited for the future. 

He added: “The club means a lot to me. Having grown up in the area, it is always a pleasure and a privilege to represent Burnley.

"So when the club offered the contract, it was a no brainer for me. I couldn’t wait to sign it.

“To play for Burnley being a Burnley lad is extra special. To see where the club has come and where it’s at now, I just wanted to be a part of that and I can’t wait for the next chapter at the club.”
