Ben Mee Pens New Contract At Burnley

Burnley defender Ben Mee has signed a new contract at the Premier League club ahead of the new season.

Mee, 28, who had one year left on his contract, has put pen to paper on a three-year contract extension until June 2021.

His new contract has the option of another year.

This is coming on the back of defensive teammate Matt Lowton’s contract renewal at the Lancashire outfit.

Ben Mee initially joined Burnley from Premier League champions Manchester City on loan in 2011 before making the move permanent a year later.

The former England U21 international has made 248 appearances for the club.

He’s the club’s second longest serving player after fellow centre back Kevin Long.

Ben Mee captained Burnley for the majority of last season after club captain and goalkeeper was injured.

He is expected to fight for a centre back slot alongside new signing Ben Gibson, Kevin Long and James Tarkowski in the new season.
