Burnley transfer news: West Ham join race for Clarets starlet, Vincent Kompany monitoring Scotland international

Here is the latest from today’s Championship news.

With almost a week to go until Burnley’s season opener against Luton Town, Vincent Kompany has spoken on his desire to build his team and not expect instant success.

The Clarets boss said: “We are not putting everything on promotion (this season).

“If it happens, then it is good for the club, and we will have a go in the Prem.

“But if it doesn’t happen, then the club can compete the year after, and the year after.“It is a crucial period for that.

“You have seen how many transfers we have had to do.

“They don’t just go away if they go wrong, they are there for a while.”

Kompany has made seven signings so far this summer - Josh Cullen, Luke McNally, Samuel Bastien, CJ Egan-Riley, Scott Twine, Taylor Harwood-Bellis and Ian Maatsen.
