Swansea City boss Russell Martin says Connor Roberts made “the right choice for him” following his deadline day move to Turf Moor.

The 25-year-old defender – who has been capped 31 times by Wales - signed a four-year deal with the Clarets as he makes the step up to the Premier League.

Roberts was a fan favourite at the Liberty Stadium, making over 150 first-team appearances after coming through the club’s youth ranks.

"He's made the right choice for him and we really hope it goes well for him and wish him nothing but success,” Martin told Wales Online.

"We offered him a new contract. It was something he wanted to wait on and see out the window, and after speaking to him again yesterday, he's left with a very heavy heart.

"It was a very tough decision for him. He's said it was an emotional decision but he felt opportunities like that don't come up all the time, especially after a big injury like he's had so that was in the back of his mind.

"He leaves with everyone's best wishes. He's done brilliantly for the club, he's a supporter of the club and he's been consistently one of the best performers here.”

Roberts impressed for Wales at Euro 2022 as Rob Page’s men reached the Round of 16 before losing to Denmark.

The defender is currently recovering from a groin injury which forced him off against the Danes.
