Vossen boost for Burnley

The Clarets make the short trip across east Lancashire to play Stanley for a game that has been designated as management team John Coleman and Jimmy Bell’s testimonial.

Burnley signed Vossen from Genk earlier this month but the former Middlesbrough loanee does not want their fans to draw parallels between him and Danny Ings, who swapped Turf Moor for Anfield when joining Liverpool this summer.

“I love to play behind the striker, to move a lot and score some goals as well,” Vossen told Burnley’s official website.

“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.

“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.”

Vossen was part of the Boro squad that almost went back to the top flight last term, only to lose the Sky Bet Championship play-off final against Norwich.

The 26-year-old is now keen to go one step further with his new employees.

“It’s a nice step for me to take in my career,” he added.

“I spent last season in the Championship with Middlesbrough so I got to know the league.

“This is the next step in my career and I have 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.”
