It feels like a proper football club and homely and that’s what I like. The manager at Villa said I could speak to Burnley and for me that was perfect, a fresh start because things had got a bit stale at Aston Villa.

I have had some great times at Villa but recently it’s not been too great, I’m now back in the Premier League and I’ve got another chance.  Coming here into a dressing room like this, full of British talent and people who want to do well.

It’s perfect for me and I didn’t have to think about it because it suits me and it suits my family.  Driving up the M6 last night past Crewe, I thought ‘yeah, this is where I want to be and hopefully that shows in my football now.
