Burnley captain Ben Mee has extended his stay at the club for a further two years, until at least June 2022.
Mee’s existing contract had 12 months still to run, and the Clarets chose to trigger the clause, which will see him extend his stay at Turf Moor to beyond a decade.
The 30-year-old recently became the 21st player in the Clarets’ history to make 300 league appearances for the club, and he now has the opportunity to add even further to that figure.
Mee first moved to Turf Moor on loan from Manchester City in July 2011 before making the switch permanent six months later
“I feel at home at the club and to have been here as long as I have has been fantastic. Taking the armband this year has really cemented that for me," he said after extending the contract.
Adding: “It feels good to extend my stay here and hopefully we can keep progressing how we have done. I’m excited for what we can do and what we can achieve.”
Mee has been a key member of the Clarets this season, playing a key role as they finished 10th in the English Premier League, including scoring on the last day against Crystal Palace.
