Coyle extends Burnley contract

Burnley manager Owen Coyle has signed a contract extension to 2013, the newly promoted Premier League club said on Thursday.

"Owen is a young manager with a great future, who will continue to revive the traditions of Burnley FC to develop young British talent and to play attractive football," Burnley operational director Brendan Flood told the club website.

Coyle had been linked with a move to Glasgow Celtic after Burnley won promotion via the playoffs in May. They will have their first taste of top-flight football since 1976 when they travel to Stoke City on August 15.
