We are now in the final stages of the summer transfer window which is set to shut for clubs across English football at 11pm tonight.
It could be a busy Deadline Day for Burnley as Vincent Kompany looks to get his first team squad set for the first half of the EFL Championship season.
The Clarets have had a steady start to the season so far with three wins, three draws and one defeat from their first seven matches including Tuesday night’s 2-0 win over Millwall at Turf Moor.
Their next fixture comes tomorrow night with a trip to West Brom but, before that, the attention will be on the final hours of the transfer window.
