Ollie McBurnie hails influence of ex-Swansea pal Llorente

Swansea City striker Ollie McBurnie says he values the influence of former teammate Fernando Llorente.

Llorente left Swansea for Tottenham last week, while McBurnie is now on-loan with Barnsley.

“I've learned a lot from him. His English has got a lot better because when he first came he really struggled with it. He's been there and done it and won every cup that is worth winning," he told The Scotsman.

“He was really good with me. He took me aside and gave me loads of tips and advice to learn from. He was trying at first through interpreters and he would go through things.

"He took me into a room and went through things with me. I'm delighted for him he got his move to Spurs."
