Burnley defender signs 3-year extension

Burnley defender Ben Mee has extended his contract for another three years, reports the club’s official website.
Mee only had year left on his deal coming into the summer, but has signed a new deal to keep him at Turf Moor until 2019.

The former Manchester City defender has spoken of his joy to stay at the Premier League club: “It’s brilliant and I’m delighted to extend my stay here at Burnley. After such a great season last year, and getting married in the summer, things just keep getting better and hopefully it will improve even more.” Said Mee

“I feel comfortable and at home here and we’ve been chatting for a while. Obviously it’s been a busy summer, so it was something we put on a back burner, but it was always going to get done.”

The 26-year-old helped Burnley keep 20 clean sheets last season, as they achieved promotion back to the Premier League, and even managed to net two Championship goals during the campaign.

Mee became a regular in Sean Dyche’s line-up, joining Michael Keane at centre-back and playing in all 46 Championship fixtures.

Burnley kick off their new season back in the Premier League by hosting Swansea City on August 13th.
