former Hull city and Norwich city winger Robbie brady has extended his contract at burnley, as announced by their official club website. 

The Republic of Ireland international was due to become a free agent this summer but Sean Dyche’s side have activated a clause in his contract to keep him for a further 12 months.

Brady, who is 28 years old, has struggled with injury for the past few seasons but has been given the opportunity to try and force his way back into the Burnley fold next term.

He was a popular player at Championship side Hull City and it was the Tigers who first gave him a chance as a youngster at Manchester United.

Brady spent a year-and-a-half on loan with the Yorkshire side before they signed him on a permanent deal in January 2013. He helped them gain promotion to the Premier League under Steve Bruce and stay up the campaign after, as well as get to the FA Cup final.

The wide man left Hull in 2015 for Norwich City, who paid a fee in the region of £7 million to lure him to Carrow Road.

Brady stayed with the Canaries until January 2017 when Burnley forked out £13 million to land him. He has since made 63 appearances for the Clarets in all competitions.

Dyche has told their website: “We have taken an option on him because we thought it was the right thing to do for now and for going forwards for next season.”

Burnley fans will be hoping to see more of him next season.
