Vincent Kompany has signed a new five-year deal at Burnley, putting to bed rumours of a move to Tottenham Hostpur.
The Manchester City legend has recently been linked with the vacant Tottenham managerial post after Antonio Conte left the club, but has now committed his long-term future to Burnley.
Speaking to the club’s official website after signing his new contract, Kompany said: “Burnley and Turf Moor felt right pretty much from the start – so it also feels right to sign for the next five years.
“Together with the fans we have made Turf Moor a fortress again and continue to look forward to the future and the job of making Burnley better with every step.”
Kompany has enjoyed a wonderful first season in charge at Turf Moor, guiding the Clarets back to the Premier League by winning the Championship. They are now just one win away from breaking the 100 point barrier in the league, which they can achieve with a win on Monday against Cardiff.

“He is the perfect fit for how we all see Burnley Football Club moving forward.
“An extraordinary leader, setting ever higher standards and driving our club to the levels we all want to achieve.”
