MID­FIELDER David Jones re­vealed he didn’t have a de­ci­sion to make af­ter join­ing Burn­ley, claim­ing Clarets boss Sean Dy­che was the rea­son he pitched up at Turf Moor.

For­mer Derby, Wolves and Wi­gan man Jones was re­leased by the Lat­ics in June and sub­se­quently joined Burn­ley on their pre-sea­son tour of Ire­land.

The 28-year-old swiftly signed a three-year deal, ad­mit­ting he only has good things to say about new boss Dy­che.

“I just felt this was a very good op­tion for me at this stage of my ca­reer,” said Jones.

“I was a free agent and I was lis­ten­ing to var­i­ous op­tions that were com­ing avail­able, but af­ter meet­ing the gaffer I was happy to join and I have been very im­pressed.”

Dy­che mean­while, has been im­pressed with how Jones has got up to speed since his ar­rival at Turf Moor.

“There were a few clubs in for David, but he wanted to get a feel for us,” he said.

“Ge­o­graph­i­cally, he is not a mil­lion miles away, so that helped.

“He came in a cou­ple of weeks late, but he is a very fit lad and we man­aged to ac­cel­er­ate him into the group, so we are look­ing for­ward to how he pro­gresses here.”
