Burnley midfielder Jack Cork has put pen to paper over a new two-year deal at Turf Moor.

Cork’s previous deal was set to expire this summer but the experienced midfielder has now committed his future to the Clarets.

The 32-year-old has so far made over 200 appearances for the club over two spells in East Lancashire.

Cork is relishing the season ahead and hopes he can help the Clarets win promotion back to the Premier League under new boss Vincent Kompany.

"I'm really excited to go again. There is an exciting opportunity to try and get promoted out of a tough league and as soon as there were talks about extending my stay here, I couldn't wait to sign,” he told the club’s website.

“The chance to work with Vincent Kompany, someone I have played against for a number of years, and someone who has won everything as a player, is great, and it will be great to learn from him. 

"I can't wait, it's a new challenge and a new feel around the place.

"Burnley feels like home for me, the two spells I've had here have been great. I have made some great memories and hopefully we can make some more now.”

Cork returned to Turf Moor in the summer of 2017 after initially joining the Clarets on loan from Chelsea earlier in his career.

The midfielder made 24 appearances last season and was a regular starter in the middle of the pitch during the final months of the campaign.

He was on target in a dramatic 2-1 win at Watford back in April, beating Ben Foster with a clinical diving header at the far post.
