Burnley have confirmed that Robbie Brady has not renewed his contract, and that the Republic of Ireland international has left the club.

The 29-year-old joined the Clarets in January 2017 in a then record transfer fee of around €15m but his time at Turf Moor was blighted by injury.

That first half-season proved to be his best as he helped the club qualify for the following season's Europa League, but a knee injury suffered in a 1-0 defeat to Leicester in December 2017 ended up keeping him out of the game for 11 months.

He also twice suffered broken ribs, which kept him sidelined, while he missed the last nine games of the season just ended with an achilles tendon issue.

"I've really enjoyed my time here," the Dubliner told burnleyfootballclub.com.

"I've loved every minute and I'm really going to miss the lads. They have been a massive part of my career and I've made friends who I will hold onto for a long, long time. In that respect everything has been great.

"Unfortunately, I picked up a quite significant injury when I felt like I was almost reaching the peak of my game in that season where we finished in the European spots.

"We'd had a really good spell and picked up a lot of points but then I picked up the injury and that was me for almost a year. I found it difficult with the magnitude of the injury getting back.

"It was a long road and a hard road for me, personally, but I managed to get there."

Manager Sean Dyche added: "Robbie has been incredibly unfortunate with injuries. In his strongest spell for us – when he was really flying and helped us qualify for Europe – he got a really serious injury.

"He came back from that and one or two other injuries to play his part in a strong time for the club.

"When he has played, he has been a credit to himself and a good servant to us as a club and we wish him well in the future."
