    Sam Vokes extends Burnley contract until 2021


    FM-News

    Burnley striker Sam Vokes has signed a new three-year contract, keeping him at Turf Moor until 2021.

    The Wales international, who has scored two goals in his last three games for Burnley, joined the Clarets from Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer of 2012.

    Vokes has since racked up 246 appearances for the club, sharing in two promotion successes and helping the Clarets qualify for Europe for the first time in 52 years last season.

    The 29-year-old has scored a total of 63 goal for Burnley, including two during his prior loan stay, and has racked up 100 Premier League appearances.

    “I was always focused and fully committed to the cause, whether I was up in the summer or not,” Vokes told Clarets Player HD.

    “But I suppose to have that security now is great for myself and my family and I’ll look forward to the next three years.

    “It’s been a huge part of my career. I joined here on loan first in 2011, so it’s been seven brilliant seasons.

    “There have been ups and down, mainly ups, and it’s been a great journey. It’s one we’re still on and I can’t wait for the rest.

    “The ambition when I joined was to play in the Premier League, which is where we are.

    “And on a personal note, I suppose I was a bit of a journey-man before I came here, after going on loan a few times from Wolverhampton, and I felt at home when I joined.

    “I definitely feel at home here now. It’s been a great club to be part of. The family feel at home and it’s a great place to be.”
