Burnley defender Hendrie aiming to build on Kilmarnock loan

Burnley defender Luke Hendrie is hoping for a chance next season.

The 22-year-old made 33 appearances for Kilmarnock last season as Killie finished eighth in the Scottish top flight.

Right-back Hendrie, who joined Burnley from Derby County two years ago, enjoyed his experience north of the border and he is confident he is returning to the Clarets a better player than he was 12 months ago.

“I loved it," he told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph. “I didn't really know what to expect when I went up there but I really benefited from it and learned a lot on and off the pitch.

“It was about playing first-team football and getting experience and I got a lot of that.

“Playing at Celtic Park in front of crowds like that was brilliant and coming back to Burnley for pre-season I will be a better player."
