Jack Cork has hinted he would be interested in rejoining Burnley following the end of his season-long loan from Chelsea.
The England Under 21 international, who made 46 appearances in all competitions for the Clarets this season, scoring three goals, is resigned to leaving Stamford Bridge in the near future to further his career.
Clarets boss Eddie Howe has confirmed his interest in bringing Cork back to the club next season and the versatile youngster is not ruling out a return to Turf Moor.
"I really like it here and I've said that from the day I've come here," Cork told Burnley's official website. "The fans have been really good to me and the players are a great set of lads.
"If anyone was to come in for me I think Burnley would be right up there. They would be the top club I would probably be most interested in going to."
Cork added: "It's somewhere I have settled already and my girlfriend is settled here.
"It's a good place and a friendly club. I have met a lot of good people here and I will have to sit down in the summer and decide what I'm going to do."
