And now he will be given a chance in the top flight to try and help fire Burnley to safety.

Speaking to Burnley’s official site, he said: “My ambition has been to play in the Premier League for years.

“I’ve had tastes of being in there but I’ve never had the chance to give it a proper bash.

“Coming here I feel I’ve got a proper opportunity to do that. I’ve never started a Premier League game and this what I want to do.

“This is a club that wants to stay in the Premier League for years to come and it’s going that way.
