The 24-year-old helped the Clarets win promotion to the Premier League last season but claims that he would have struggled to earn first-team chances in the top flight.
"In terms of where Burnley are, you can't judge them too harshly because they have had some tough games," he told the Daily Echo.
"But in terms of my own personal decision, I'm happy. I've been starting games and coming on the pitch. I've only not come on once when I've been on the bench.
"I think I've contributed towards the team and how we've played. My decision was solely based on football reasons and playing, and I've had that opportunity so far, so I can't complain."
The former West Ham United has struck once for Bournemouth this season.
