Swedish striker Joel Mumbongo signs new Burnley deal

Teenage forward Joel Mumbongo has signed a new deal to extend his stay at Burnley.

The 20-year-old joined the Clarets on an initial short-term deal in the summer after previously playing for Serie A side, Hellas Verona.

And the Swedish striker has now been rewarded with a contract running until June 2021.

Mumbongo said with a beaming smile: "I'm extremely happy to get this over the line, it's a great club to play for and i have really enjoyed my first six months here.

"Getting my future sorted is a huge relief for me, although that doesn't mean the hard work stops, i must carry on working hard and training hard every single day.

"I am very happy here, i'm with a great squad and it's very good club, with great facilities and everything is going well, so it's amazing for me."
