first_img​Heaton backtracks on Burnley futureby Ansser Sadiq10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveTom Heaton has played down speculation of leaving Burnley.The 32-year-old goalkeeper was previously adamant about his desire to leave, as he was not getting regular game-time.But a start against West Ham, which was his first in the league, has eased his mind. Heaton kept a clean sheet as his team notched a 2-0 win at home.”I never wanted to leave the football club, it’s just the fact that I wasn’t playing that I would have had to,” said the goalkeeper after the game.”But after being back playing today it’s the last thing on my mind to be honest.”At 32 I don’t really have much time to waste. Not for one minute did I want to go anywhere but sometimes it has got to be looked at.”That probably changes now. It’s great to be back out there and I can’t tell you how pleased I am to be back out on the pitch and pull on that shirt again.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
