Ashley Barnes has committed his future to Burnley by signing a new "long-term contract" at Turf Moor.
Barnes, whose existing contract was due to expire at the end of next season, has agreed a new deal with the Clarets until June 2021.
The 28-year-old striker has scored seven goals in 32 appearances for Burnley this season and becomes the fifth senior member of Sean Dyche's squad to sign a new deal since the start of the season.
"I think I am playing some of my best football, but I've still got a lot to come," said Barnes.
"I'm still learning. I learn every day on the training ground. I knuckle down and try to do the right things and keep taking on information from the staff and it's paying off.
"The club is only going in one direction and that's up and I'm privileged to be part of it.
"Come the end of season who knows where we'll be and if we can still be where we are now that would be huge credit to all the lads.
"This has capped off a good year, with eight games still to go, and I'm delighted it's done."
