Burnley have announced defender Bobby Thomas has signed a new three-year contract with the club.

The 20-year-old Clarets academy product made his first-team debut in a Carabao Cup win at Millwall last September.

He subsequently spent the second half of the season on loan at Barrow, making 21 Sky Bet League Two appearances, and has been on the bench for all of Burnley’s games so far this term.

Thomas said in quotes on the Turf Moor outfit’s official website: “It’s something you work towards since you are a young kid. To sign a long-term deal at an established Premier League side is a nice feeling.

“It’s an important step, that transition from coming out of the 23s, hopefully into a first-team environment, whenever that may be, which will be a nice reward for working hard and all the sacrifices.”
