Burnley fell to Crystal Palace 2-0 over the weekend, and face Manchester City on Tuesday. For now, enjoy today's Premier League rumours.

Nir Bitton has begun crunch talks with Celtic manager Neil Lennon amid reported interest from Burnley.

According to the Glasgow Evening Times, Lennon is keen on keeping Bitton at Parkhead, who is out of contract in the summer.

Lennon said: “We don’t want him to go, we want him to stay. So, talks are on-going.

“We don’t want him to run down his contract, for sure. He’s made indications he would like to stay and that’s what we want too.”

The midfielder could be available for a minimal outlay if he fails to agree a contract with the Scottish champions.
