Chelsea youngster Cork excited by Burnley chance

Chelsea midfielder Jack Cork is delighted with his loan move to Burnley.

Cork is the son of former Wimbledon and Sheffield United striker Alan Cork and, although he is yet to feature for Chelsea's first team, he believes he is now ready to play in the Premier League after more than 100 appearances during previous loan spells with Championship clubs Scunthorpe, Southampton, Watford and Coventry.

"I've learned a lot over the last three years with all the different teams I've been at and the different styles of football, so hopefully I can use that experience and try to push on now," said Cork, who has two-and-a-half years left on his contract at Stamford Bridge but has not ruled out extending his stay at Burnley beyond the end of the season.

"I've played quite a lot of positions this year. I've played at right back, right-hand side of midfield and in the middle of midfield. I quite like it in the middle.

"I know a few of the boys here so hopefully it will be easy for me to settle in. I know Pato (Martin Paterson) from Scunthorpe.

"Hopefully if I do well here then everyone will be impressed with me, then maybe I stay here or maybe I go back to Chelsea.

"It's not decided yet so I just need to see how well I do here first and look at where to go after that."
