You can't blame Ainsley for wanting the best possible deal. It would be a shame to see him at Burnley though. Was hoping for a more stylish club.

If he wants to play CM Burnley is the best he can hope for as he just does not have the football intelligence and positional awareness to play there.

The crystal Palace itk say he off to Burnley he seem pretty sure about it too. Say the wages could be issue but didn't mention for who

Still feel he should have stayed, and worked to develop himself as a RB...if an internationally recognised midfielder in Lauren could do it, then Niles shouldn't have thought he was above it, tbh...he could have been a starter for us for around a decade.

Sometimes in life you can't always get what you want and if you try you fall even further away, sometimes you have to make the best of what you could get...hope he enjoys playing in midfield for a team constantly fighting relegation.

I guess he would have been fighting relegation here, but at rightback...least he could have stayed with all his mates though!

CM is just by far the most complex position to play while fullback the least.
You have to be a special footballer(Lahm) to be able to make that transition.

Even much more talented players than AMN(Alaba) were shifted to fullback because they were just not quite enough in the centre. No shame in that.

I'd hope wages aren't a problem. If he backs himself as highly as he does then he will get the money in due course.

Burnley would be a terrible move for him. He won't improve at all there.
Respectfully disagree. He will play in a very structured team that will keep his game simple. Very similar to West Brom were the fans rated him highly. If he does well there no reason why he can't move onto a higher level.
