Burnley defender James Tarkowski happy with personal form

Burnley defender James Tarkowski is pleased with his current form.

Tarkowski was on standby for England ahead of last summer's World Cup but pulled out to undergo a hernia operation.

The 26-year-old admitted it took him a bit of time to find his feet again this season but feels he is now beginning to hit the heights he reached last term.

“When I had surgery and came back initially I had a bit of fitness to get back as I had missed a bit of training before that and it took a bit of time," said the centre back to the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.

“I wasn't always pleased with my performances but I just feel comfortable out there now. I'm enjoying being part of the team and working hard and getting the rewards for it."
