Burnley defender Matt Lowton has signed a new contract to stay at Turf Moor until the summer of 2020.

The ex-Aston Villa full-back, who had 12 months left on his existing deal, recently chalked up his 50th appearance for the Clarets and 100th in the Premier League.

After signing his new two-year deal, the 27-year-old said: "I'm delighted to extend my stay here. I had a year left, but when the club and the manager approached me about a new deal it was a no-brainer for me.

"I've enjoyed every minute of my time at Burnley and want to play my part in keeping the club in the Premier League and beyond.

"I experienced a good set-up at Aston Villa - but this is Premier League quality, and we are looking forward to that helping us take things forward."
