Jensen: New deal
Long-serving Burnley goalkeeper Brian Jensen has penned a new two-year deal with the club.
The keeper, who turns 35 next week, was an ever-present during the Clarets' ultimately doomed Premier League campaign.
Jensen, affectionately known as the 'Beast', is the club's longest-serving professional after arriving from West Brom in 2003.
He is closing in on 300 appearances for the Clarets but boss Brian Laws believes he still has much to offer as the club seek to increase competition in that position.
Laws told the club's official website: "We are delighted Brian has agreed to sign the two-year deal we offered. He is a quality goalkeeper and someone who has served this club with distinction.
"He is not only a great servant, but a great ambassador and, even at his age, we feel Brian has good years ahead of him. We hope to drive him on further this summer because clearly we would like to strengthen in that area.
"It is something we are trying our hardest to achieve so that Brian has real strong competition, which can only improve his performances for the club."
Jensen has now followed Stephen Thompson and Michael Duff in signing new deals with the Clarets.
