Premier League Summer Signing Admits He Could Be Tempted To Leave For China

Premier League Summer Signing Admits He Could Be Tempted To Leave For China

The Far East Movement continues to attract high-profile names with a host of players swapping Europe for China. From Oscar, Carlos Tevez, John Obi Mikel, to name but a few.

And the fledgling league could welcome another star from Europe in the shape of Burnley's Steven Defour. The Belgian international only joined the Clarets in the summer completing a £7.5 million switch from Anderlecht.

Despite just arriving, Defour has admitted a mega contract from a Chinese Super League side would be too hard to turn down. Following his stunning goal in their FA Cup clash against Bristol City, his value probably went up.

Speaking after Saturday's game, the midfield maestro was brutally honest about his future with Burnley amid the wave of players heading to Asia.

"I can't say I'm staying at this club forever." Obviously, no one is expecting the 28-year-old to remain with the club forever but he's barely six months into his contract.

He also adds; "It's great to be here and to score such a great goal was nice. But if a big offer was made from a Chinese club, both me and Burnley would have to think about it."
