Dummigan Signs New Deal

11 January 2016

Defender Cameron Dummigan has today extended his contract with the club, signing a new two-and-a-half-year deal.

The former Youth Team Player of the Year - who is currently on loan at League One side Oldham Athletic - will remain at Turf Moor until the summer of 2018.

Dummigan, 19, is yet to play first team football at Turf Moor, but made his Football League debut for Oldham in a 3-3 draw at Gillingham in October 2015.

The right-back, who is capped six times for the Northern Ireland U21s side, has made Sean Dyche’s squad on five occasions.

The former Cliftonville youngster first made the bench in December 2013, in a stalemate against Watford at Turf Moor.

Dummigan was named on the bench for Burnley’s first game of their 2014/15 Premier League season against title holders Chelsea, and this season has been an unused substitute on a further two occasions.

And Clarets boss Dyche is delighted to keep the promising defender at Turf Moor.

He said: “We're pleased because it's another young player who we've been monitoring wisely for the last couple of years.

"He had an unfortunate run last year because he would have been around the squad a lot more but for an injury.

"He's done fantastically well to get through that, he's shown really good signs during this pre-season and we felt the loan move to Oldham was appropriate and he's done ever so well there.

Dyche added: "He's kept his head clear, he's kept himself in good shape and he's coming through strong so we're delighted he's stayed.

"We believe in what we do here at the club and how the players are developing, but of course the ultimate aim is to get them playing first-team football and expose them to that, within reason.

"Cammy is amongst a group of good players who are out at the moment and plying their trade at other clubs."
