Burnley defender Ben Mee has signed a new three-year contract at Turf Moor.

Mee, who had one year left on his existing deal, made 49 appearances last year as the Clarets bounced back to the Premier League at the first attempt.

The 26-year-old first joined the club in 2012 after completing a loan spell from Manchester City, whom he captained to FA Youth Cup success in 2008.

Mee told Burnley's official website: "The club is going somewhere at the minute. It's been ever-changing throughout my time here and you can see things going on at the training ground and the way the team is going.

"It's exciting and we're definitely moving forwards. Now I just want to help keep the team in the Premier League - that's my short-term goal and I want to be a big part of it."
