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.
