Vossen apologises to Burnley after moving to Club Brugge

Jelle Vossen has apologised to the Burnley fans following his shock exit from the club on Monday.

Vossen had arrived at Burnley this summer on a £2.5million deal from Genk but after only eight weeks at the club, the striker surprisingly made a return back to Belgium by joining Club Brugge.

Following the completion of the move, Vossen has explained that he decided to make a move back to Belgium due to family reasons and apologized to the fans for his swift exit from the club.

Vossen told Burnley's official website: "I am very sorry for the fans of Burnley. The move to England on a permanent basis has been tough for me, mostly for family reasons.

"My wife and I were married this summer and immediately have had to leave family and friends behind. I had no problems at Burnley or with the people and fans at the club, who made me feel very welcome and for which I thank them.

"However, after discussing things with my family, I feel it is better to make the move now, for the benefit of both parties. I would like to wish Burnley Football Club every success in the future."
