​Burnley offer Barton new deal

Burnley have confirmed Rangers target Joey Barton has been offered a new contract, along with keeper Paul Robinson.

Barton excelled for the Clarets last term and is also the top target of Rangers boss Mark Warburton.

Robinson signed for the club in January as cover for Tom Heaton but never made his first-team debut.

Clarets boss Sean Dyche said: "There are always tough decisions to make at the end of every season.

"But in football you have to keep moving forwards and on behalf of everyone at the football club, I would like to thank the players leaving us for all their efforts and professionalism.

"We wish them well in their careers elsewhere and we look forward to working again with those who will remain at Turf Moor."
