Burnley transfer rumours: tNewly promoted side eye Clarets keeper, Derby County lead way in race for ex-Preston star

Here are all the best of today’s Championship transfer rumours.

As reported yesterday by Burnley Express’ Chris Boden, Wout Weghorst looks set to leave Turf Moor.

The striker only joined Burnley in January as Chris Wood’s replacement but failed to help them remain in the Premier League, scoring twice and assisting another three goals.

Despite having three years remaining on his contract, he has made it clear that he has no intention of playing in the second tier of English football.

Speaking to Voetbal International, Weghorst said: “We have clearly agreed in advance that I will not play in the Championship.

“The club would like to keep me and will do everything they can to return to the Premier League as soon as possible.

“For next season it is important that I can perform at a high level, also with a view to the World Cup in Qatar.”
