Conlan returns to Burnley

Northern Ireland Under-21 defender Luke Conlan has rejoined Burnley on a one-year contract, the Barclays Premier League club have announced.

Conlan was released by the Clarets over the summer but having recovered from a knee problem has now put pen to paper on a new deal at Turf Moor.

The 19-year-old said on "I'm very happy to be back at the club, I know a lot of the lads from the last few years and this is where I want to be at.

"I want to progress now with Burnley again and hopefully kick on in the next year.

"I had a few other offers from clubs who wanted me to go on trial but as soon as the opportunity came up here to get another contract it was what I wanted to do."

Elsewhere in the Burnley development squad, there have been new deals for Tom Anderson and Steven Hewitt, with 12-month extensions exercised on the contracts of Cameron Howieson and Jason Gilchrist. Anderson has signed on for another year and Hewitt for two.

The Clarets also announced on Tuesday that goalkeeper Alex Cisak has signed a new two-year contract with them.

The former Oldham player joined Burnley in 2013 and is vying with Tom Heaton and Matt Gilks for a first-team spot.
