Burnley duo Kyle Lafferty and Michael Duff have signed new contracts with the club.
Burnley's Northern Ireland international duo Kyle Lafferty and Michael Duff have both signed new three-and-a-half year contracts.
Lafferty - recently the subject of a failed bid by Celtic - had a contract which ran until 2009, while Duff's existing deal was due to run out at the end of the season.
The pair's decision to commit their futures to the club has come as a major boost to manager Steve Cotterill whose team have still not recorded a win in 2007.
Cotterill told the club's official website: "I am delighted to have signed both players on longer contracts.
"First of all, to have someone as young as Kyle come through the youth ranks and be in the squad is excellent.
"We are delighted with his progress and look forward to him playing a bigger part in the future of the club.
"And I think Michael has to date probably been our most consistent player."
