Burnley boss Vincent Kompany has signed a new five-year contract at Turf Moor, the club has confirmed.

The former Manchester City and Belgium defender has guided the Clarets to the Championship title in his first season in charge.

He had been linked with a move away from East Lancashire, with Tottenham and Chelsea both reportedly interested in his services.

But Kompany has now committed his future to Burnley ahead of their return to the Premier League.

“Burnley and Turf Moor felt right pretty much from the start - so it also feels right to sign for the next five years,” he told the club website.

“Together with the fans we have made Turf Moor a fortress again and continue to look forward to the future and the job of making Burnley better with every step.”

Burnley wrap up their Championship campaign tomorrow afternoon when they host Cardiff. They will be presented with the trophy in front of a sell-out crowd after the game.

Chairman Alan Pace added: “We are ecstatic Vincent has signed a new deal!

“He is the perfect fit for how we all see Burnley Football Club moving forward.

“An extraordinary leader, setting ever higher standards and driving our club to the levels we all want to achieve."
