The club has confirmed that Hart, who took on the role 12 months ago, has departed Turf Moor to pursue new opportunities.

Alan Pace, the Chairman of Burnley FC will take on the role of Executive Chairman, overseeing the club for an interim period until a new CEO is appointed.

Pace said: “With the significant impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the last year has involved several challenges in overseeing a Premier League football club, and I’d like to recognise Neil for the work he’s done at Burnley and in the local community.

“While overseeing the club in the interim period, the board and I will begin the search for a new CEO immediately and will update supporters in due course.”
