Agyei Signs New Clarets Deal

Striker secures extended stay as keeper Conor Mitchell also signs new contract

8 May 2018

Striker Daniel Agyei has signed a new contract to extend his stay at Turf Moor.

And goalkeeper Conor Mitchell has also put pen to paper on his new deal to commit to the Clarets.

Agyei has agreed a 12-month contract after returning to Burnley following two spells out on loan in League One this season.

The 20-year-old scored five times for Walsall in the first half of the campaign before moving to Blackpool – where he featured largely as a substitute – in January.

Agyei, who made his Premier League debut and a total of three substitute appearances for the Clarets at the end of last season, will be back in the fold for pre-season as the former AFC Wimbledon youngster looks to make a further mark at Turf Moor.

"I'm delighted to be staying," Agyei said.

"Hopefully I can come back next season and kick on and try and push for a place in the team."

Mitchell, meanwhile, has signed a 12-month deal with a further year’s option.

The Northern Ireland under-21 international (above) has been a regular for the Clarets’ under-23s in the second half of the season after completing a loan stay at National League side Chester FC.

Portrush-born Mitchell, 21, who has been with Burnley since 2012, has also previously been part of the first-team set-up and will get the chance to try and gain further senior experience next season.
