Vokes pens new Burnley deal

Sam Vokes has signed a new contract with Burnley, the club have confirmed.

Vokes started out at Bournemouth in 2006 and moved to Wolverhampton Wanderers two years later. After a host of loan spells across England, he finally arrived at Turf Moor in 2012 and he’s been there ever since, accumulating 246 appearances and bagging 63 goals for the Clarets so far. He also has 11 strikes to his name from 60 caps for Wales, including a stunning goal against Belgium at UEFA’s Euro 2016 in France.

Vokes’ 20 goals in the 2013/14 season were a very important factor in Burnley’s promotion to the Premier League as he struck up a formidable partnership with Danny Ings, and having returned to the Championship the following season, Vokes was once again of huge influence as they finished the 2015/16 season atop of the table in England’s second-tier league. Since then, they’ve established themselves as a regular team in the top flight.

The newly signed deal should see the 29-year-old remain a Burnley player until 2021.
