Speaking about signing for Burnley Robbie Leitch said, “I’m delighted to sign because it’s a club that is really going places and the fact they’re back in the Premier League is great.

Hopefully I can play regularly for the U21s this season and keep progressing to try and challenge for a spot in the first-team as quick as I can. I’ve got a bit of history in English football as my dad played for Swindon a few years back and hopefully I can do as good as him!”
