Kieran Trippier has revealed he would only make a Premier League return to join Burnley.
The England right-back has been in top form since joining Atletico Madrid in a £20million deal from Tottenham last summer.
Trippier made 185 appearances for Burnley before leaving for Spurs in 2015, and he often speaks highly of Clarets boss Sean Dyche.
The pair worked together for three years at Turf Moor, with Trippier recently comparing his former manager to Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp.
And the 29-year-old insists he would ‘love’ to retire at Burnley.
He told the Burnley Express: “We have a great relationship. We’re in contact all the time about family, football – he still mithers me about taking me back one day.
“It’ll happen one day for sure, I’ll 100 per cent be back playing for them.
“If I’m at Atleti for another two years, that’ll take me to 32, and Burnley’s the only club that I’d come back to England for.
“After that I’d start my coaching badges and I’d love to coach at Burnley. I’d just love to go wherever Sean Dyche goes.”
Dyche insisted last month that Trippier is one of the best professionals he has ever come across in football.
“I just love the kid, his character, his manner, his inner-drive and determination,” said the Burnley boss.
“He wouldn’t really shout the odds about it but the way he trained and went away about it. There is a lot to like about Kieran.
“I don’t keep in touch with many players because of the nature of the business but I do with Kieran.
“Just now and again we share a couple of text messages and that sort of stuff because he is just one of the best packages I have come across as a footballer.”
