Burnley transfer news: Clarets ‘open’ contract talks with midfielder, West Brom ‘target’ Brighton striker
The latest transfer news from Turf Moor
and live on Freeview channel 276
Burnley are back in action tomorrow evening as they host West Brom in the Championship. The Clarets could extend their winning run to a whopping 13 matches as they look to widen the gap between themselves and Sheffield United.
Meanwhile, the Baggies sit in sixth place after claiming three points in all but one of their last ten league fixtures. Carlos Corberan’s side could potentially move up to third in the Championship if they can overcome Burnley.
West Brom certainly take an advantage to Turf Moor having come out on top in eight of their last meetings. The Clarets’ only win came in the Premier League in 2018, with goals from Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood.
