Burnley winger Scott Arfield has signed a new three-year deal with the Championship club.

The 26-year-old joined from Huddersfield in 2013 and helped the Clarets win promotion to the Premier League in his first year at Turf Moor.

Arfield made 40 appearances during the 2014-15 season, scoring two goals.

"The fans get right behind you and it's a fantastic dressing room to be in - it was a no-brainer for me to extend my stay here," he told the club website.external-link

Meanwhile, Burnley striker Jason Gilchrist will be out for several months as he will need surgery on a broken ankle.

He fell during Wednesday's friendly at St Mirren and fractured his fibula.

The 20-year-old came through the Burnley youth system but is yet to make a first-team appearance and was loaned to Accrington last season.
