Burnley striker Lewis Richardson pens pro terms

Burnley striker Lewis Richardson has signed pro terms.

The highly-rated striker, 17 today, has penned a deal keeping him at Turf Moor until the summer of 2022.

Richardson told the club's website: “It's life changing. I have worked so hard for this, training at 7pm at night and getting home at 10pm, four days a week, since about 12 years old.

“That is a long time, and to now sign my first professional contract, means the world to me and I'm absolutely over the moon.

“I have been here since I was eight years-old and ever since my first trial here, I just fell in love with Burnley Football Club.

“Everyone at the club has just made me feel so at home and I am delighted to have committed my future here."
