Lyle Foster Signs New Deal with Burnley
Former Orlando Pirates player, Lyle Foster, has signed an epic long-term deal with English outfit, Burnley FC.
On Thursday, 26 October, it was announced that Foster – who previously played for the Buccaneers from 2017 to 2019 – would be permanently joining the Clarets on a five-year deal. That means he will play for the club until June 2028.
Details around his new salary are scarce, although reports state that the 23-year-old forward was paid in the region of £20 000 on a weekly basis when he first made the yet-to-be-permanent move to Burnley earlier this year.
So far, Foster has helped the 18th-placed outfit by scoring three goals and grabbing two assists in seven games.
“I’m very happy to stay here,” he told the club’s website. “It’s a club with very good people, and I have really enjoyed working here and I’m pleased to extend my stay. The supporters, Turf Moor, everything here. The way we organise ourselves and our standards is something I fell in love with.
“It’s a club that pushes towards excellence and that’s something I want to be a part of … It’s a long season with lots of tough games, but as time goes on, I think we will grow stronger.”
