Burnley transfer news: West Ham ‘monitoring’ Burnley star amid £10m alternative talk, Club ‘assess possibility’ of free Chelsea swoop

Burnley interim boss Mike Jackson is awaiting further instruction from chairman Alan Pace ahead of Thursday’s home game with Southampton, after a 1-1 draw at West Ham in his first game in charge.

The Clarets came away from the London Stadium with a point after Wout Weghorst’s headed opener was cancelled out by Tomas Soucek – although Maxwel Cornet missed a penalty he won himself to make it 2-0.

Nick Pope also made two stunning stops to preserve a point late on.

But, 48 hours after the surprise sacking of Sean Dyche, the club appear no further down the line to appointing a permanent replacement, and Jackson will get on with the task as long as required, with another important game to come on Thursday against the Saints, before Wolves come to Turf Moor on Sunday.

Asked about his plans moving forward, Jackson said: “We will have a recovery day tomorrow (Monday) and go from there.

“I think, when it is ready to be said, which I don’t know, and I don’t know what is being discussed behind the scenes at this moment in time.

“But I am sure the board and chairman will give the information that supporters want.

“The priority is the next game for us and we have to concentrate on what is next.”
