​Burnley defender Taylor: I was never pushing to leave


Burnley defender Charlie Taylor states he never pushed to leave the club this summer.

He is now one of the most experienced players at Burnley, given the many older stars who departed the club after their relegation to the Championship.

Taylor is hoping to play a big role for the Clarets under new coach Vincent Kompany this season.

"I am quite quiet on the pitch, off it I am one of the more senior players at 28 and I need to probably put it on myself to take more responsibility and lead and show the younger lads," he told LancsLive.

"I was never really pushing to move, I'm happy here and I think it's a good project.

"With the manager and the players we've brought in I think we've got a good squad. I think we should be right up there challenging for the league this year."
