Burnley Football Club has today announced that Michael Duff has agreed a new one-year deal at Turf Moor.

Duff, who will now enter a 12th season with the Clarets after deciding to extend his stay, returned to pre-season yesterday for the first session on grass and later penned the deal.

The 37-year-old defender made 21 Barclays Premier League last season in his testimonial year and impressed once again alongside skipper Jason Shackell at the heart of a defence that kept 10 clean sheets.

Belfast-born Duff moved to joint 15th in the club’s all-time appearance makers in the 2014/15 season having reached 358 appearances for the club and equalled Derek Scott’s record.

He has proved to be a fantastic servant for the football club after joining from Cheltenham Town for a mere £30,000 in July 2004 and his testimonial match will take place on Saturday, August 1 at Turf Moor with Bradford City the opponents. Ticket details for this fixture will be announced in due course.
