Former Manchester United full-back Richard Eckersley has described his decision to join Burnley as an easy one.

Eckersley was set to join QPR on loan but when he heard of the Clarets' interest, his plans quickly changed.

"They are a big club," he said. "But it was a no-brainer when Burnley came, because I want to perform in the Premier League.

"I like the way Burnley play, they pass and move, and I am looking to get some games under my belt."
