The versatile defender, 21, is currently on loan at League Two club York City, and made his Football League debut for Hartlepool in a 1-0 win at Dagenham in October.

Hendrie, who joined Burnley in August 2015, had six-months remaining on his current deal.

And the former Manchester United and Derby County youngster is delighted to have extended his Turf Moor stay.

He said: “The six months I have had here so far have gone well. Unfortunately I picked up a little ankle injury that put me back for a few weeks, but I am delighted to have extended my stay here.

“The plan was to come here, pick up as much knowledge as possible and get some more experience on loan, which I managed to do while on loan at Hartlepool.

“After returning from Hartlepool through injury I got myself back fit at Burnley before joining York last week, so I’m excited for the loan there and the next 18 months at Turf Moor.”
