Burnley FC transfer news: Newcastle United offered Clarets ace, Watford set to miss out on 11-goal midfielder

Here is all the best from today’s Championship transfer news.

Burnley are set to secure their sixth signing of the season, with Josh Cullen nearing a move to Turf Moor.

Vincent Kompany is very familiar with the midfielder, after Cullen made 40 league appearances under the Belgian at Anderlecht last season.

Kompany signed Cullen from West Ham two years ago after spending 15 years with the London club, though he only managed a handful of appearances for his boyhood team.

Now the 26-year-old is set for a medical today after a fee in the region of €3/3.5m was agreed to bring him back to England.

Cullen will join Scott Twine, Luke McNally, CJ Egan-Riley, Taylor Harwood-Bellis and Samuel Bastien as the Clarets’ summer signings.
