England

Midfielder Benson joined the Clarets in July 2018 after ending a two-year scholarship with Arsenal.

The play-maker had been with the Gunners' Academy since under-nine level.

Benson impressed in training and in a handful of games for the Clarets' under-23s in the latter stages of the 2017/18 season to earn a professional deal at Turf Moor.

A stand-out player for the Under-23s during the 2018/19 campaign, the central midfield man was named as a substitute for the Clarets' Premier League game at Manchester United at the end of January, 2019.

A hamstring injury then ruled him out of the closing weeks of the campaign as he missed the run-in to the U23s' campaign as they came up just short in their league and cup campaigns.
