Photos: Swansea City midfielder Jack Cork in his Burnley days

The talented midfielder spent 18 months on loan at Turf Moor.

Swansea City take on Burnley at Turf Moor this afternoon in a game with special resonance for one Swansea player.

Jack Cork joined the club at the start of the month after watching first-team football dwindle at Southampton, but prior to his move to the South Coast from Chelsea, he had been on an eighteen month loan deal with The Clarets.

Cork signed for Burnley in February 2010 on a six month loan deal, as Burnley were fighting relegation from the Premier League.

In the end it was a fruitless endeavour, as Burnley were relegated that season, but he certainly impressed during his time at the club.

He played 11 times in the Premier League that season and even notched a goal. He scored in the 4-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur in May 2010 and his performances impressed so much that Burnley kept him for another season.

In his second season in Lancashire he was a regular, playing 46 times and scoring three goals in the Championship prompting newly-promoted Southampton to snap him up in the summer of 2011.

He will be hoping to get one over on the club that truly gave him his break this weekend.
