Burnley striker Sam Vokes has signed a new three-year contract, keeping him at Turf Moor until 2021.

Wales international Vokes, who has scored two goals in his last three games for Burnley, joined the Clarets from Wolves in the summer of 2012. He has racked up 246 appearances for the club scoring 63 goals, including two during a loan spell the previous season.

The 29-year-old has made nine Premier League appearances this term for Burnley, who sit 13th in the table and host Chelsea on Sunday lunchtime.

"I'm delighted to have sorted it out and signed on the dotted line. It's great to commit for the next three seasons here," Vokes said.

"It's been a huge part of my career. I joined here on loan first in 2011, so it's been seven brilliant seasons.

"And on a personal note, I suppose I was a bit of a journey-man before I came here, after going on loan a few times from Wolverhampton, and I felt at home when I joined.

"I definitely feel at home here now. It's been a great club to be part of. The family feel at home and it's a great place to be."
