What Was Said?

Speaking to the club website, McNeil said: “I’m delighted to sign a new contract. I love playing for the club and it’s a club I want to be at.

“It’s a great position to be in and I couldn’t have asked for more help from the lads, to be honest.

“My focus was always to be a Burnley player and carry on doing what I’m doing because I love the club, I love the team and playing for the gaffer and that’s what I want to carry on doing.

Reflecting on his Burnley career so far, he added: “I’m so happy and fortunate to have been in the team but I think I’ve also showed what I’m capable of doing and I just want to keep doing that.

“I feel like I’ve become more experienced and understand myself more as a person on and off the pitch.

“I just want to do the same as last year now and continue to be part of the team throughout the year. I just want to play football.”

Rising Star

At Burnley from the age of 14, McNeil made his debut for the club against Olympiakos in the Europa League in 2018.

In his first season in the Premier League, the England U21 international played 21 matches, scoring three goals and registering five assists.

Now firmly a first-team regular, McNeil was ever-present for Burnley last season, scoring two goals and providing six assists to help his side to a tenth-place finish.
