Burnley boss Sean Dyche has given an insight on Matej Vydra’s start to life at the Turf Moor.

The Czech Republic international has been in fine form for the Clarets with his debut goal coming in the Europa League and has been impressive ever since.

“He made it clear that he didn’t want to be in the Championship and he wanted another chance at the Premier League,” Dyche told the Burnley Express. “We thought he was the right player to give that chance.

“He knows the work ethic of the team, which is something that he’s learned very quickly, and he’ll have to play his part in that.

“I think there’s plenty more to come from him. He’s made a good start, he’s nicked a couple of goals, and I think he’s settling in well.

“He’d had a chance (at the Premier League), but he’s much more rounded now.

“When you get to 25/26 you’re a bit more rounded; he’s traveled, he’s matured.

“That’s part of the reason why we were delaying, thinking, ‘Is he ready?’ and, ‘Is he right on that readiness to move forward again in his football?’ We hope he is.

“He’s made a good start and shown early signs that he is. We hope that all those experiences that he’s had continue here so he can show us how good a player he is.

“We know about his sharpness, physically, but also his sharpness mentally around the box. I think we saw that with his goal (against Bournemouth).”
