Wembley hero Wade Elliott to make Turf Moor return with Birmingham

Wembley hero Wade Elliott makes his first return to Burnley tomorrow with the Blues.

Burnley boss Eddie Howe explained it was a tough decision to let him go in August: “The difficult one with Wade’s experience - and he’s played in the Premier League and had a fantastic career - was was he going to play every week?

“He’d reached the stage of his Burnley career where possibly he needed a fresh challenge.

“We were disappointed to lose him and what he brings to the group, he’s a fantastic professional, really looked after his body.

“He comes back with all the best wishes of every Burnley supporter, what a player he was for the club, and our best wishes because we enjoyed working with him.”
