The 22 year old has signed a new 3 year contract with a further year option with the South Wales club. McBurnie said: "There have been a lot of reports, but my plan was always to come back after the loan at Barnsley. I wanted to get games there and then come back here... I am delighted to sign the new contract. It's been a long time coming, but after coming back and seeing the plans for this season, and speaking to the gaffer [Potter] and everyone involved, I think it's the perfect thing for me to do at this time in my career. It's a time in my career where I need to be settled and find a home. I need to be with my family and concentrating on my football. The club have shown faith in me with this contract and I have shown faith in the club. Hopefully it can be mutually beneficial and we can work well together. For me it's now about trying to play as many games as possible and trying to help the club as much as possible."

 

Mahrez Looking For Champions League Trophy

Former Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez has said he moved to a "big club" so that he could win the Champions League. Mahrez said: "The Champions League is for big clubs, they're a big club, they have everything to try to win it. City have ambition to go further than the Champions League quarter-finals like they did last season. I made the decision to come here because I want to be part of that. Pep [Guardiola] is a big manager, he's won a lot of things and made history with this club. I'll give my best to achieve for the club. If I can help add quality."
