Johann Berg Gudmundsson signs new three-year deal with Burnley

Johann Berg Gudmundsson has signed a new three-year contract with Burnley.

The Iceland international, who joined the Clarets from Charlton Athletic in July, 2016, had one year remaining on his previous contract.

The 27-year-old has made 34 league appearances this season, scoring twice and assisting eight goals to help Burnley guarantee a seventh-place finish and qualify for next season’s Europa League.

“This season has been a good season for myself and the team and being rewarded with a new contract is a great thing,” Gudmundsson told Clarets Player HD.

“It’s something I wanted to do. I want to stay here. I feel comfortable here and my family likes it here, so I definitely wanted to sign a new contract.

“It’s a good thing to sign it before the World Cup, just to get everything out of the way and now I can concentrate on the last game and the World Cup.

“I think I’ve played well this season but as a player you always want to do better and next season I will hopefully do even better.

“I have a few good years probably in me. I’m at a great age at the moment and I think there are better things to come from me.

“They are exciting times and it’s going to be nice to play in Europe.”

Gudmundsson becomes the sixth senior player to sign a new deal at Turf Moor this season, joining Nick Pope, James Tarkowski, Ashley Barnes, Kevin Long and Stephen Ward.
