Michael Kightly is ready to commit himself to Burnley after admitting that his he unlikely to have a future at parent-club Stoke City, Sky Sports understands.
The 28 year old moved to the Clarets on a year-long loan back on last summer’s transfer deadline day, and he doubled his goal tally for the season over the Easter Weekend to help the side clinch promotion to the Premier League.
It is the second time the midfielder has achieved promotion from the Championship, having been part of Wolverhampton Wanderers’ league winning squad in 2009, and he is keen to help Burnley in the top flight next season.
Kightly, who began his playing career with non-league Basildon United, made just fourteen league starts for Stoke since joining them from Wolves in 2012, and while he is set to return to the Britannia Stadium next month, he believes that the silence from the club since he left speaks volumes.
