Dyche led Burnley to promotion in his first full season in charge at Turf Moor

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has signed a new contract as the club prepare to return to the Premier League.

Dyche, 42, has been Clarets boss since October 2012, and led the club to automatic promotion last season.

The club did not reveal the length of the former Watford manager's new deal, but said his backroom team had also been given improved contracts.

Co-chairmen John Banaszkiewicz and Mike Garlick said they were "very pleased" the deals had been agreed.

Since his appointment, Dyche has spent a transfer fee on only one player - striker Ashley Barnes.

Burnley will start the new season with a home game against Chelsea on the weekend of 16 August.
