Vincent Kompany has signed a new five-year contract with Burnley after leading the Clarets back to the Premier League.
The Belgian, who signed for the club in 2022, has been the mastermind behind their dominant season in the Championship, having lost just three games this season and racked up a staggering 98 points.
Impressively, they secured promotion against Middlesbrough last month, even with seven games left, having scored the most goals (84) and fewest conceded (35) to book promotion back to the top flight after a one-year absence .
And despite rumors that several clubs, including Tottenham, could take a shot at the 37-year-old, Kompany has now resigned from Burnley until at least 2028.
A statement on the club’s website today read: ‘Burnley Football Club are delighted to announce that manager Vincent Kompany has signed a new contract to extend his commitment to the club.’

“Burnley and Turf Moor felt good from the start, so it feels good to sign for the next five years,” says Kompany.
“Together with the fans, we have made Turf Moor a fortress again and we continue to look forward to the future and the task of making Burnley better with every step.”
