The former England number one, 36, joined the Clarets on a short-term deal in January during their promotion push for the Premier League.

And Robinson, who provided back-up to Tom Heaton for the final 19 games of the Championship season, following an injury to Matt Gilks, has been rewarded with a new 12-month contract.

Manager Sean Dyche said: “We are delighted to have Paul back on board.

“He continues to work hard at his profession and his wealth of experience is hugely beneficial to the team and, in particular, the goalkeeping department.

“Our other goalkeepers, especially the younger ones, will continue to improve while Paul is with us and we look forward to working with him again this coming season.”

The former Leeds United, Tottenham Hotspur and Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper has clocked up over 400 club appearances and earned 41 England caps in a stellar career.
