Tom Heaton to stay put at Burnley

Heaton hints at long-term Burnley stay

Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton has no desire to switch clubs in the summer following a top season with Sean Dyche's side this term.

The 31-year-old has been crucial to the Clarets' league position this season after having kept 10 clean sheets in the 34 outings.

Heaton received his maiden England cap earlier in the season, and he is now hungry to achieve more success at Turf Moor rather than switch clubs in the summer.

"It is about playing Premier League football and continuing to work at the international setup," he is quoted as saying on FourFourTwo.

"I'm delighted to be involved in that and have a taste for it - and now I've got a hunger for more. I want to continue improving every day and I'm more than happy where I am at the moment."

Heaton, formerly of Manchester United, has produced a number of standout performances this term, including one at Old Trafford where he single-handedly held the Red Devils to a nil-nil scoreline.

The 31-year-old currently has over three years left on his present deal which he inked after Burnley's top-flight return last summer.

Both Newcastle United and Crystal Palace have been credited with an interest in the Three Lions shot-stopper, but it appears that they may have to look elsewhere for potential additions.
