Clarets’ defender Kevin Long has returned to Accrington Stanley on a season-long loan.

The two clubs have agreed an extension to the deal which will keep the 20-year-old at the Crown Ground until May 31, 2011.

Long made a dozen appearances during an initial three-month loan at Stanley late last year, but after enjoying his first taste of League football he returned to Turf Moor early in January after breaking a toe.
