The 24-year-old said: “After careful deliberation I have decided to turn down the offer of a contract extension with Burnley Football Club and move on to pastures new.

“I would like to thank the Burnley fans for their support over the three years. The crowd reaction after I scored against Blackburn will live with me forever.

“I wish my team mates, the fans and all the staff every success for the coming season in the Premier League.”

Stanislas joined the Clarets in the summer of 2011, ending a 10-year association with the Hammers.
