Ireland international Keith Treacy has been told he will not be offered a new contract with Premier League newcomers Burnley.

Clarets' boss Sean Dyche is planning to build a squad for their top-flight campaign next term and will need to add numbers to what is already a small group.

However, winger Treacy, 25, will not be part of that squad after making 75 appearances and scoring five times at Turf Moor since joining from Preston North End in the summer of 2011.

Treacy, who has six Ireland caps, made just 13 appearances in Burnley’s promotion campaign this season.

The Dubliner was informed today, along with team-mates David Edgar, Brian Stock and Nick Liversedge, that they were being let go.

"Burnley Football Club would like to place on record our thanks to the quartet for their efforts and contributions to the club, and wish them every success in their further careers," the club said in a statement.
