Jelle Vossen has big ambitions at Burnley

17 July 2015

Vossen joined the recently relegated Clarets at the start of the month, and he believes he is at the right place to further his career.

The Belgian striker wants to play in the Premier League, and he feels that his new team have a good chance of achieving promotion from the Sky Bet Championship this term. 

“It’s a nice step for me to take in my career,” Vossen, who spent last season on loan at Middlesbrough, said to Burnley’s official site. 

“This is the next step in my career and I feel I have the same ambitions as the club, so that’s a good fit and I can’t wait to get the season started.

“Everybody knows this club and for me it was very important to know the ideas of the manager and the club.

“They share my ambitions and that is to get up to the Premier League as fast as possible. You can see it here that everyone wants to get back to the Premier League but we have to take it step by step.”

Vossen arrives at Turf Moor soon after the departure of Danny Ings, who had become Sean Dyche’s side attacking lynchpin over the past two seasons.

However, the 26-year-old does not want to be compared to the England youth international, who has recently moved to Liverpool.

“I don’t want to be compared with any other player. I just want to do my thing and I don’t think it’s good to be compared with Danny Ings,” he added.

“We both have our own qualities and I’m looking forward to showing what I’ve got and being a big part of this team.”
