Clarets Sign Jack Cork From Swansea City
Former Clarets loanee Jack Cork has resigned for Burnley and admitted it was great to be back at Turf Moor after being reunited with the Clarets. The former England U21 midfielder signed a four-year deal after leaving Swansea City and become the third signing of the summer.
Cork, who made 57 appearances for Burnley on loan from Chelsea between January 2010 and May 2011 is delighted to be back at Turf Moor, speaking about signing for the club Cork said, “It’s great to be back, I’ve got some great memories from the year and a half I was here and it’s good to come back and see some old faces.
It’s good to come back and try and have another go here especially in the Premiership. A lot has changed the whole set-up and the playing staff is completely different to when I was here last. It’s a new challenge for me and one I’m excited about and looking forward to meeting new people.
Cork, who joined the Swans in 2015 and captained the Welsh side last season added, Swansea have signed someone in the same position and we have a lot of midfielders so it was going to be a difficult year. The bid came in and both me and the club were keen to talk to Burnley. It’s been a busy couple of days, but I had the medical yesterday and then flew out today and it’s good to be here.”
