Vincent Kompany signs new 5-year deal with promoted Burnley

BURNLEY, England (AP) — Vincent Kompany has signed a new five-year contract with Burnley that ties him to the recently promoted club until at least 2028. Kompany is a Manchester City playing great who has just led Burnley back into the Premier League in his first season as manager at Turf Moor. The former Belgium defender has been linked with vacancies at both Chelsea and Tottenham but said it “feels right” to stay on at Burnley. Kompany says “together with the fans we have made Turf Moor a fortress again and continue to look forward to the future and the job of making Burnley better with every step.”
