27-year-old winger, Ross Wallace has a signed a new contract to stay at Turf Moor until June 2015 after agreeing a two year extension. His previous contract was due to expire at the end of the current campaign. Wallace signed in July 2010 making the short journey from Lancashire rivals, Preston North End.

He is clearly delighted about the contract extension saying:

“It`s what I wanted and didn`t take long.

“I didn`t want to move from the start and I am just happy to get a bit of security.

“I`m not sure really sure what would have happened with Eddie (Howe) here, because we didn`t really discuss anything.

“But the new manager made it clear that he wanted me to stay. I am enjoying my football and as long as I am playing games I am happy.

“I want to play at the highest level I possibly can. The manager has come in with the same ambition, so it`s a good situation.”

Clarets gaffer Sean Dyche talking about the new contract said:

“We are delighted that Ross has agreed a new, long-term deal with the club.

“He is a valued member of the squad and I am sure he has a big part to play in our future.”

Wallace becomes the first of our senior players out of contract in the summer to sign a new deal.
