Burke eager to play at West Brom

West Brom’s new signing Oliver Burke says he is looking forward to featuring regularly after making the switch from RB Leipzig.

The young Scot felt he wasn’t playing often enough as Leipzig made a surprise tilt at the Bundesliga title last season, which is what prompted his switch to the Baggies.

“It’s been a problem, not getting much game-time”, Burke told Sky Sports News. “The more you play, the more confident you are.

“When I was at Leipzig, I was coming on for the last 10 or 20 minutes, and the game has kind of gone then. You don’t get a feel for how you are as a player.

“I just love football and I don’t care who for, just as long as I’m playing and I’m happy.

“Moving to West Brom is obviously going to help me and I think Tony Pulis believes in me a lot. He told me he’d watched me for a very long time, since I was a young boy.

“I felt it was the right move for me, back to England and to what I know, and hopefully I can enjoy myself and really kick on.”

The 20-year-old missed out on the latest Scotland team that defeated Lithuania 3-0 on Friday, but will be hoping to feature when the Baggies face Brighton and Hove Albion next weekend.
