Sean Dyche has signed a new four-year deal with Burnley, committing his future to the team.

With over nine years at Turf Moor under his belt, the 50-year-old is the

Premier League

's longest-serving manager, and he has now pledged his future to the Clarets until the summer of 2025. 

Dyche said:

"It is nice to be able to get this deal completed and now look towards the future of this football club, and its constant evolution.

"I have a strong affinity with the area and our supporters after so many years here and I look forward to putting in the hard work needed to keep the club moving in the right direction.

"It was an important summer for us to add talent and depth to the team, but the work doesn't stop there. As a club we're about developing and improving players and the environment we foster here is so important to that.

"I am looking forward to continuing to develop that environment, work with a great group of players and coaches and to build on the positive relationship with our new ownership headed up by Alan."

Burnley began their sixth consecutive Premier League season at the start of the new season. 

Chairman Alan Pace said the transfer maintains the club's growth, developing on Dyche's success at Turf Moor, when they finished seventh for the first time since 1974. They also competed in the

Europa League

the next season.

When Burnley hosts Arsenal on Saturday, they will be looking for their first league victory of the season.
