DWIGHT McNeil has signed a new contract at Burnley, keeping him at the club until 2023.

The teenager has burst onto the scene in recent weeks and has started the last five games, scoring in the win over West Ham United.

The 19-year-old, who signed his first professional contract at the club last April, made his debut for the club on the final day of last season and has made 10 appearances for the Clarets.

The winger's new deal, replacing one which was due to expire next summer, has an option for a further 12 months and is reward for his performances.

“A lot has happened in a short space of time and I’m happy to have signed a new deal,” said McNeil, who joined Burnley in 2014 after leaving Manchester United.

“I hadn’t really thought this far ahead but I’m just happy it’s come so soon.

“The main aim was to sign it so I can focus on my football and I’ve done that now so I can focus and crack on with what I’m doing.

“I think I’ve taken my opportunity well and hopefully I can build on that.

“Hopefully I can stay in the team and really focus on this season. I think we’re doing well and we’ve got to keep that form going.

“It’s a dream staying in the Premier League. It’s the best league in the world and you always want to stay and play in the Premier League.”
