Clarets stalwart Michael Duff is set to hold discussions over a new contract tomorrow.
Duff, currently enjoying a testimonial year after 11 seasons with Burnley, signed a one-year extention last summer, and Sean Dyche is eager for the 37-year-old to stay on at Turf Moor.
The squad return for pre-season training on Wednesday, but Duff, a bargain £30,000 signing from Cheltenham Town in the summer of 2004, will meet for talks in advance of preparations beginning at Gawthorpe.
Dyche said recently: “We’re talking to Duffo now.
“I made it clear last season there was a contract available to him.
“We’re just ironing out the details. I told him it would be during the summer, so he understands that.”
Duff is keen to play on, after a season where he made 22 appearances to hit 300 league starts for the club, and 360 appearances in total.
He said after relegation from the Premier League was confirmed: “I’ve not really thought about it but I’ve got no intention of retiring.
”I’ve still got something to offer.
“I still feel fit. The day I feel that I don’t have anything to offer I’ll pack up. I think this season has proved that I’ve still got something to offer.
“This season was a free hit for me really. It’s been a bonus year because I didn’t ever expect to get back to this level so I’m just enjoying every minute.
“We’ll pick the bones out of this, get over the disappointment, and move forward on several fronts.”
