It is now up to whoever the club's new manager, rumoured to be former Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany,, will be, to decide which of the nine out-of-contract players at Turf Moor will be offered new deals.
And it is suggested that the first offer made has been to injured striker Vydra.
Why offer Vydra a new deal?
It is believed that we are still yet to see the best of Vydra in a Burnley shirt, with the Czech international struggling for game time under former boss Sean Dyche.
However, the forward has 67 goals in Championship football so it is clear to see why he could be an important asset for the club in the second division.
As well as this, Vydra was just beginning to become an important member of the team, before an ACL injury struck against his former side Watford, and therefore he should be a player that Burnley look to keep.
He adds a different dimension and element of pace to The Clarets attack, and following recovery from his injury could definitely become a key member of the squad as Burnley look to push back towards the Premier League.
Other players out of contract
Tarkowski and Bardsley are believed to be leaving the club, whereas the club have options on both Cork and Barnes.
It is also widely believed that The Clarets are in contract talks with captain Mee, who is of huge importance to the side.
It remains to be seen who will stay and who will go, but with the offer made to Vydra, it is obvious the club are making a move when it comes to contracts.
