Roberts expecting eye-opening signings from Kompany

Connor Roberts expects new Burnley boss Vincent Kompany to sign players who would previously not have been interested in joining the club.

Kompany was named Burnley boss on Tuesday after quitting his job as Anderlecht head coach after three years in late May.

The former Manchester City and Belgium captain takes over following the club's relegation from the Premier League and a mass clear-out at Turf Moor.

Wales defender Roberts believes Kompany's standing in the game will benefit Burnley, saying: "We do need to add and I'm sure Vincent will have his targets.

Hopefully he's got contacts from Man City, and other places he's been, to bring in players that maybe before wouldn't have been that interested in joining Burnley.

"It's an exciting time to be a Burnley fan. Obviously it was disappointing to get relegated, but there's going to be lots of changes. So exciting times.

"It's been in the pipeline for a month and he's in the building now.

"I can't wait to get back there to see what the future holds for myself, him and the team.

"To have someone like that as a manager, who was a colossus back in the day... he is going to pass that on and get us to do that for him."
