Burnley boss Owen Coyle has started planning for next season by releasing three players and offering fresh terms to the same number.

Evergreen veteran Graham Alexander has been offered a new one-year deal, while Steve Jones, Alan Mahon and Gabor Kiraly have all been deemed surplus to requirements.

Alexander, 37, was one of Burnley's outstanding performers in their promotion winning campaign last term and has been rewarded with the offer of a one-year contract.

Coyle has also offered fresh terms to teenage duo Adam Kay and Alex MacDonald, with the pair having now come to the end of their first professional contracts.

Heading out of the Turf Moor exit door are peripheral squad members Jones, Kiraly and Mahon, who all had loan spells away from the club last term.

Goalkeeper Kiraly moved to Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen in January, while towards the back end of the campaign Jones and Mahon had stints at Bradford and Blackpool respectively.
