Matej Vydra reveals Burnley exit

Matej Vydra has left Burnley after failing to agree a new deal with Sky Bet Championship Club, the forward revealed on his Instagram account.

The 30-year-old joined the Clarets from Derby in 2018 and made 82 league appearances for the club.

Vydra’s contract expired at the end of June while he recovered from a cruciate ligament injury that sidelined him for the last four games of the season.

The striker said Burnley only made him an offer with new terms that he couldn’t accept.

“I want to say goodbye to my amazing fans who have supported me throughout my time here at Burnley FC,” said Vydra.

“I was fortunate to experience the family atmosphere of the club, great teammates and the excellent support from our doctors and physiotherapists who helped me through my injury.

“I’ve done my best to reach my full potential during the contract period and I’m not afraid to risk an injury towards the end of this contract either.

“That’s just how I am and I wanted to help my club at all costs. Unfortunately I was badly injured during a game against Watford and the club were relegated to the league.

“Yesterday I saw my brilliant surgeon Andy Williams who was very pleased with my recovery. I am ahead of the estimated recovery time and have been told I could be back on the field soon.

“Negotiations with the club were minimal, I received an offer that I couldn’t accept.

“I wish the club and the fans a great season and good luck.”
