Lowton Signs New Long-Term Contract

4 April 2017

Defender Matt Lowton has committed himself to the Clarets’ cause by signing a new long-term contract.

The former Aston Villa defender, who had just over 12-months left on his existing deal, has extended his stay until the summer of 2020.

And Lowton, who recently made his 50th appearance for the club in tandem with his 100th Premier League appearance, insists he is looking forward to continuing his progression at Turf Moor.

The popular right back said: “I’m delighted to extend my stay here. I had a year left, but when the club and the manager approached me about a new deal it was a no-brainer for me.

“I’ve enjoyed every minute of my time at Burnley and want to hopefully play my part in keeping the club in the Premier League and beyond.

“I feel like I’m really enjoying my football at the moment and probably playing as well I have at any time in my career.

“Much of that is down to the lads in the team because everyone here works so hard for each other and that’s been the secure to our success.

“The club is on the up and you can see that on the pitch and also behind the scenes, like the new training ground, which is just about as good as it gets.

“I experienced a good set-up at Aston Villa but this is Premier League quality and we are looking forward to that helping us take things forward.”

Chesterfield-born Lowton became Sean Dyche’s first summer signing of 2015 when he joined on a three-year deal from Aston Villa for an undisclosed fee.
