Burnley have signed Jay Rodriguez and Matej Vydra to new contracts.

Rodriguez, 31, is enjoying his second spell at the club, while Vydra joined from Derby County in August 2018.

"I'm really pleased. I've enjoyed my time here with a great bunch of lads and, obviously, being in my home town with my family and friends is an added bonus," said Rodriguez, who ended his first stay in 2012 to start a five-year spell with Southampton.

"On the football side I'm enjoying playing, want to play more and still have a lot to give. I feel fresh, fit and ready to go.

"Going into your thirties you might get looked at differently compared to being young, but I always look at my stats and maybe do a bit more recovery than when I was 19.

"With all the facilities here it's a lot easier to look after yourself and feel fresh for each training session and each game and long may it continue. I will just keep giving 100 per cent.

"I always feel I need to keep improving and working on my game. As long as you keep doing that, I think it's good for your mind and for your body."

On his deal, Vydra added: "It's really good for my family to be settled and to know that we will be here for another year.

"It's been a successful time for the club while I've been here, playing in Europe and doing well in the Premier League.

"I get on well with all my team-mates here and it's a good group to be part of.

"I still want to play my part and that's something I'm aiming to keep doing."
