Burnley transfer rumours: Clarets and Newcastle United eye former Leeds United, Arsenal and Rangers man as Premier League clubs eye deals

Burnley take on Southampton after the international break

Indeed, the Clarets aren't resting on their laurels after moving seven points clear of the relegation zone after the win at Everton.

Midfielder Ashley Westwood admits the job is not yet done, to secure a sixth-successive Premier League season, and the squad are looking to hit or break the 40-point barrier for the fifth-straight campaign.

The Clarets hit 33 points after the 2-1 victory at Everton last Saturday evening, and Fulham - in 18th - have since lost twice at home, leaving the Cottagers with a three-result swing to make up in their final eight games, with Burnley also boasting a game in hand.

Burnley are next in action at Southampton on Easter Sunday after the international break, and the former Aston Villa man said: "I think we looked at the Everton game - Fulham kept on picking up points, and it was getting really close.

"You start getting nervous.

"But to go there and put on a performance like that, it gives you a bit of relief - seven points is a big gap with nine to go.

"We want to push on, we have some massive fixtures coming and we want to break that 40 barrier.

"We'll keep pushing as a squad.

"We've only been beaten by the top six in the last load of games, which is good, and we're going into the last run of games with a lot of confidence.

"We want to break that 40-mark and we're on our way."

Here, we take a look at the rest of the transfer talk from Burnley and their top-flight rivals:
