Oli Burke feels he's always had the 'pressure piled on' him by the media, following a couple of high-profile moves at a very young age.

The Kirkcaldy born forward started his career at Nottingham Forest before a big money move to RB Leipzig. He moved back to England a year later, joining West Bromwich Albion for another substantial fee and Burke acknowledges the 'language barrier' is the most difficult challenge to overcome when moving abroad.

Now a Blade though, Burke wants to 'settle down' in the Steel City and is confident this will be his long-term 'home'.

Burke has settled into life at the Lane quickly and is relishing the opportunity of potential making his debut in Thursday's Carabao Cup tie at Burnley.
