Burnley captain Tom Heaton cannot wait for the next Premier League campaign to start as he prepares himself for a third season with the Clarets.
The Burnley Express reports that the 31-year-old England international feels confident after an exceptional boost of form from last season.
In his total of 73 appearance for Burnley at the top flight, Heaton has kept 20 clean sheets and made the most saves in the Premier League last season with 141 stops.
Heaton himself declared that he was in good shape ahead of Burnley's first pre-season friendly against Ireland's Shamrock Rovers on the 15th.
“I’ve been chomping at the bit to get back in and it was a nice start,” said the England international.
England lost the match 3-2 with Harry Kane netting twice for the Three Lions. Heaton Reminisces about the experience: “It was a nice summer.
“Obviously, I was delighted to start the game for England and disappointed to lose, but I thoroughly enjoyed the 45 minutes and it ended up being a very good two weeks’ away.
“That two-week international break in the middle, where you are working and have to be on top of your game, helps you.”
