Burnley boss Dyche happy Heaton doing well with Aston Villa

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is happy seeing Tom Heaton doing well with Aston Villa.

The goalkeeper left Burnley this summer to sign for Aston Villa, who the Clarets face on Saturday at Villa Park.

Dyche said, “I am pretty good at these sort of things as regards emotionally. There will be no emotion during the game but before maximum respect for Tom on and off the pitch. Great fella – my first ever signing here of course for the grand total of zero.

"He has been a brilliant servant. After the game full of respect again but during it won't even cross my mind. It never does when I am playing against players we have had here.

"It never bothers me that sort of things, other than tactically if you are looking at the different view point but not emotionally. I am sure he will know that!

“Full of respect and I am sure the group will be but during the game that will go out of the window because we want to win."
