Republic of Ireland midfielder Robbie Brady will remain at Burnley for at least one more season after the club exercised a 12-month option in his contract, extending his deal until the summer of 2021.

The 28-year-old Irish international has made 63 appearances for the Clarets since joining from Norwich in January 2017, despite missing most of 2018 with a knee injury which sidelined him for 10 months.

Since then Brady has faced competition for his place from the emergence of Dwight McNeil, but a club statement said he "remains a key component of (Sean) Dyche's plans".

Burnley added that the contract extension will allow Brady "the chance to reproduce the kind of form that saw him light up the league" during the 2017-18 season.

Along with the rest of the Burnley squad, Brady made a return to training this week as the club prepares for a potential return to Premier League action in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Dubliner made his most recent Ireland appearance against New Zealand in a friendly last November and was on the bench for the 1-1 home draw against Denmark in the Euro 2020 qualifiers four days later, having missed the September and October 2019 international fixtures.
