BURNLEY new boy Jon Walters is a perfect fit for the Clarets, according to his international teammate Robbie Brady.

Walters’ arrival took the Irish contingent at Turf Moor to five, but Brady believes the club have landed a bargain in bringing the experienced forward in.

The 33-year-old arrived from Stoke City for an initial £2million and after joining up with his new colleagues last week he marked his first appearance in a Burnley shirt with a goal against Shamrock Rovers on Friday night.

Brady believes Walters’ spirit is an ideal fit for the Turf Moor dressing room and he expects a big season from the Clarets’ new addition, with both men finding the back of the net in Friday’s 4-0 win over Shamrock Rovers.

“He’ll bring all sorts. His determination, he has this thing about him and he’s very good at bringing people together and pushing in the right direction,” Brady said of Walters.

“He suits us here brilliantly and I think there’s a lot to come from Jon this year.”

Walters’ fellow new arrivals Charlie Taylor and Jack Cork also joined in time for last week’s Ireland training camp and get almost a full pre-season in with their new teammates, and Brady is also looking forward to a productive summer.

The £13million club record buy joined at the end of January so this will be his first pre-season with Burnley, and he think it’s a key period.

“It’s important for me and important for the new lads that we can gel together over the next few weeks and learn how one and another play with the new lads,” the 25-year-old said.

“Hopefully we can put in some good performances and get ready for the season.

“Personally, I feel it’s a big season for me. It was fantastic to bed into such a great group here last season, but it took me a little longer than I expected and it was a little bit frustrating for me, the six months I had.

“It was a bit stop-start, but I feel better now and I’ve had nothing but good thoughts about hitting the ground running and having a great season.

“I feel there’s a lot more to come from me and hopefully I can show that.”

Brady was the star attraction during Burnley’s training camp at Carton House as local youngsters flocked to see the Clarets train.

“A lot of the local kids have been down watching training and people have got wind we’ve been training here and have come down to watch. It’s always good to see,” he said.

“We’ve had a great start to pre-season, everyone has come back fighting fit and look sharp so it’s a positive to start off with.

“The off season used to be a time you could completely switch off for your summer but it’s not really like that anymore, you need to keep on top of things and that’s what the lads have been doing.

“It’s about getting the balance right now over the next few weeks and getting as fit as possible and making sure everyone looks after themselves and we’ll be ready to go for the start of the season.”
