Hendrick replaced Steven Defour, with the Belgian's honour of being Burnley's transfer record signing lasting for just 15 days, and the Clarets new record buy is now keen to rise to the challenge and force his way into the starting XI.
“I think I've got to take it as a compliment really," he told the Lancashire Telegraph. “The club were willing to pay that and know I've got to show that I'm worth it, I've got to put performances in every week and that's the challenge for me. I look forward to it.
“I've had two good days training with the lads and managed to make my first Premier League appearance.
“I'll knuckle down come Monday and start working hard again. If I get selected I'm going to make sure I'm ready to keep the spot."
