Clarets star plans impact

Burnley striker Kyle Lafferty is aiming to make more of an impact during his second full season in the first-team picture. The Clarets signalled their intentions to keep Lafferty at Turf Moor after rejecting two bids from Celtic and Wolves for the teenage Northern Ireland international last season. And now Lafferty is looking to repay manager Steve Cotterill's faith with an improved goal haul this season. "They seem keen to keep me because there have been a few bids for me, from clubs like Glasgow Celtic and Wolves, but they say I'm not for sale," he admitted. "It's good to know that they want me to stay. "That played a lot on my mind, but I eventually got over it and got back to what I love - playing football. "I really want to get a more regular place. Being in for two games and out for one or two proved difficult last season."
