NEW Burnley signing Junior Stanislas is looking forward to reigniting his career at Turf Moor.

The 21-year-old wide man joined former West Ham United striker Zavon Hines in making the move from Upton Park in signing a three-year deal with the Clarets yesterday.

Having broken through from the Hammers' Academy the England Under 21 international's career had become a bit stop-start in the capital.

But Stanislas is ready to make up for lost time.

“I am delighted to be here. It's a big decision, but at the same time it's all about playing football,” he said.

“I just want to play week in and week out and unfortunately that wasn't happening back in London.

“If you are not doing that at one club, then you have to look elsewhere.

“That's football, so hopefully I can come here and make an impression.

“Burnley seems like a good family club with good people, so I'm glad it's all gone through and I'm just eager to get playing again.”

Of his reunion with Hines, Stanislas added: “Zavon and I have spoken a few times and he has been telling me how friendly the people, the manager and staff are so I'm really looking forward to it.

“I had a conversation with Eddie (Howe) and he said he was looking to bring in a lot of young boys, including myself.

“A lot of the boys here are hungry and determined to get back in the Premier League, so it's sounding good for us.”
