Burnley manager Vincent Kompany has signed a five-year contract with the Championship winners, effectively ending Tottenham's hopes of appointing him.
  • Kompany signed five-year extension
  • Was linked to Tottenham job
  • Will lead Clarets in Premier League instead

WHAT HAPPENED? The Belgian coach took over as Clarets coach last summer, signing a deal that runs until 2025. After just one year, however, he has decided to extend his commitment to 2028 after guiding them to the Championship title and a return to the Premier League.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The former Manchester City defender has been linked with taking over as Tottenham coach this summer, but it appears the London side will have to look elsewhere for a permanent successor to Antonio Conte.

WHAT THEY SAID?: Kompany said after committing to a deal until 2028: “Burnley and Turf Moor felt right pretty much from the start - so it also feels right to sign for the next five years.

“Together with the fans we have made Turf Moor a fortress again and continue to look forward to the future and the job of making Burnley better with every step."
