But Eckersley, who kicked off his career with Manchester United, feels that he may be better suited to remain with Toronto rather than come back to Turf Moor where he may be pushed to the side.
"I think it's going in the right direction so I think any player really, if you're with a club like that, you want to stay. I think they've showed a lot more interest in me than Burnley. I have to respect that."
He added on whether Burnley really want him back: "That's what is probably the most disappointing thing because I don't know, to be honest.
"They've invested money in me and they don't care. I don't know. They've not contacted me and that's it."
