Burnley midfielder Mace Goodridge delighted with new contract

Burnley midfielder Mace Goodridge has signed a new contract with the Clarets, extending his stay at Turf Moor until the summer of 2021.

Goodridge, 20, originally started out at Manchester City, before spending two years at Newcastle United in the youth team, where he played alongside current Magpies midfielder Matty Longstaff.

He told the Burnley website: “I'm really happy, to get it over the line, I've worked hard to get back from my injury, so I'm delighted to get it done.

“Obviously, I have been in and around the first team a couple of times and that's where I want to be.

“You can see how well the first team lads have done, come through a tough patch against top teams recently and I want to be a part of that someday.

“I really enjoy being here, it's my third season here now and I'm delighted to be here for a fourth come pre-season.

“And although I have been to a few clubs, I really feel like I have found a home here and I'm ready to kick on."
