Thompson agrees new Clarets contract

The 31-year-old, who made just one Premier League start, finished

the season in style with four goals in the last six matches. “He

did really well last season and I’m delighted that he has agreed to

stay,” said manager Brian Laws. “I am delighted to have that

experience in the squad and again he is a player who knows what’s

required to get out of the Championship.” The former Rangers and

Dundee United striker has followed Michael Duff, Clarke Carlisle

and Graham Alexander in signing new deals. Midfielder Robbie Blake

is still considering his contract offer from the Clarets.
