Heaton admits he considered leaving Burnley

Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton admits he considered leaving last month.

Having missed most of last season with a shoulder injury, Heaton began to consider leaving Burnley in January and briefly discussed it with Dyche.

"I felt there was a decision coming up," Heaton told the Daily Mail. "I have experience of how fast football can change but it was hard to see it this time.

"The manager understood my difficulties and we were going to talk again in January.

"Then suddenly it all did change."
