LOAN star Jack Cork believes Burnley are capable of making a swift return to the Premier League, and hinted that Turf Moor may not have seen the last of him.

The 20-year-old signed off his temporary stint on Sunday with a goal, helping the Clarets to bring the curtain down on their top flight campaign with a 4-2 win over Spurs.

Cork’s second-half bullet head-er inspired Burnley to recover a 2-0 deficit against Spurs on the day that his parent club, Chelsea, were crowned champions of England following their 8-0 rout at home to Wigan Athletic.

With his dad, Alan, the former Wimbledon and Sheffield United striker, watching from the stands, Cork beamed: “I was really pleas-ed to get a goal.

“It was probably the same sort of goal my dad would have scored when he was playing.

“I was really happy to get my first goal and it topped off a good result for us.”

But Cork admitted there was an underlying frustration that it had come too late to affect the bottom three.

“We’ve only had three wins in the last half a season so it’s been a bit disappointing that way, but it’s been a great way to end the season, especially coming from 2-0 down,” he said.

“The fans were brilliant and got behind us, and we were really appreciative of that.”

And Cork revealed the players were pleased to repay the fans, and restore some pride, after relegation was confirmed a fortnight ago.

“We knew it could be our last chance in the Premier League, if we don’t come back up next year, for a while. We just thought ‘come on, we’ve got to do something here’,” he said.

“We had a good chance of doing something good before the season ended and the lads just set out to do well and we achieved that.

“It’s quite hard when the team’s going into games and they’re losing quite a lot of them and sometimes the performances aren’t that great, but the supporters have been brilliant the whole time.

“They’ve been brilliant all season. I’ve got nothing but good things to say about them.”

Cork, who has played more than 100 senior games but has yet to make his Chelsea debut, isn’t sure where he will be playing his football next season.

He is set to return to Stamford Bridge this week to discuss his future. But relegation hasn’t put him off a return to Turf Moor.

“I want to see what the feedback is (at Chelsea),” said Cork.

“Maybe if Burnley come in for me in the summer I’ll have to really, really think about it.

“I know next year we’ll have a really strong team, especially if we keep a lot of the players. The financial situation is good and it’s a really good club.

“I can really see Burnley bouncing back.”
