Keane happy for Hendrick over Burnley move

Republic of Ireland assistant coach Roy Keane is happy for Jeff Hendrick over his move to Burnley.

The midfielder left Derby County for the Clarets this week.

Keane said: "I have always liked Jeff. He has matured over the last year or two. He's probably played better in international football than he has at club level, maybe.

"He had a few injuries last year, to be fair, for Derby. He missed a bit of the run-in with them, but I'm not surprised Jeff has got his move.

"He's gone to a good club in Burnley and from a selfish point of view, we obviously want all our players playing at the highest level, in the Premier league or abroad as one or two have tried. I think its good news all around."
