​Steven Defour's agent claims that the player would definitely consider moving to China if the opportunity ever presented itself.


The Belgian joined Burnley during the last transfer window, signing from Anderlecht. But he is dissatisfied with his playing time under Sean Dyche this season, and has voiced his complaints to Belgian media.

Asked whether his client would be willing to pack up and move to China, Paul Stefani told Het Nieuwsblad: "Why not?


"If you play for three seasons there, you never need to work again. It's a magnificent experience. There are stars and interest is growing. Going there no longer means disappearing off the radar."


Dyche, though, insisted that he was happy with his player's disappointment over his minutes, as it shows a willingness to help the team.


"Good, I'm delighted," Dyche said ahead of the Clarets' Boxing Day fixture against Middlesbrough.

"My players should be disappointed because they want to play, and he definitely does.


"He's not a kid, he's a very good player and he's adapting to the Premier League and working hard to do that. If he said or didn't say that, that's what he should be thinking.


"Not to the detriment of anyone, just the fact 'I want to be playing,' and you want players who are hungry to be in the team, without a shadow of a doubt."


Burnley could not hold off Manchester City on Monday, however, losing 2-1 to Pep Guardiola's men, even after they had a player sent off. But they are in a great position in the table and don't look like they'll be heading back to the Championship this year.
