Sam Vokes has signed a new three-and-a-half-year deal at Burnley, the club’s official website has confirmed.
The striker has 37 caps for his national side Wales, and was an important part of Burnley’s last season in the Championship, scoring 20 goals to get them promotion.
He spent most of the following year in the Premier League on the sidelines following a serious injury. After recovering, he scored on the opening day of the season this time around.
Vokes played a big role in Wales’ qualification for Euro 2016, and has been rewarded by a new long-term deal at Turf Moor.
The 26-year old started his career at Bournemouth, before moving to Wolves, where he went on many loan spells. He signed for Burnley in January 2012, scoring 29 in 125 for the Clarets.
Vokes has missed just two games of Burnley’s season so far, and only Andre Gray has scored more than him in their quest for promotion straight back tot he top flight.
Burnley currently sit fourth, having earned 48 points in their 27 games this season.
