Burnley's star striker Lyle Foster has committed his future to the club by signing a new five-year deal that will keep him at Turf Moor until the summer of 2028.

The South African joined Burnley in January this year from Belgian side Westerlo and has made a big impact, helping the club achieve promotion and going on to score three goals and provide two assists in his seven Premier League appearances so far.

“I’m very happy to stay here," Foster told the club's official website. "It’s a club with very good people and I have really enjoyed working here and I’m pleased to extend my stay.

“The supporters, Turf Moor, everything here. The way we organise ourselves and our standards is something I fell in love with. It’s a club that pushes towards excellence and that’s something I want to be a part of."

Burnley have had a difficult start to the season and lie 18th ahead of a crucial duel with 19th-placed AFC Bournemouth this weekend. But Foster has faith in the team.

"It’s a long season with lots of tough games but as time goes on I think we will grow stronger," he said.

“We will have a good season. I have plenty of belief and confidence within the squad, the coaches and everyone around the building.

“There is no need to stress. Just enjoy what we’re doing and there’s a recipe for success.”
