Manager Sean Dyche has praised England debutant Jack Cork as we build up to the game this weekend against Swansea City this weekend.

The 28 year old midfielder became the 27th Burnley player to become a full England international as he took to the pitch as a substitute against world champions Germany at Wembley this November international break, and he does of course follow quickly in the footsteps of Tom Heaton and former claret Michael Keane. Former full back Kieran Trippier is also a regular in Gareth Southgate’s group and Dyche believes it reflects well on the side.

Speaking to the Official Site as he met with the media ahead of this weekend’s action, the gaffer explained.

‘I think it’s tremendous for Corky and very good for us as a club. It’s another player recognised in the national side. We have gained more international appearances for our players for various countries but I think the England side is an important marker for clubs like us to have players in there. I think he’s deserving of it and his form this season has been excellent.’

Having long been an admirer of Cork going back to his days at Watford, Dyche went on to say.

‘I marvelled at their performances as two very young men playing in a two in midfield in the Championship. I never forgot from then what kind of lad he is. A lot of the players I believe in I’ve watched and kept a distant view on before I signed them. He’s deserving of the accolades he’s had and he’s had plenty of them.’
