How much Burnley's players are worth according to Premier League Fantasy Footbal...

The Clarets have already made four signings to date this summer in Lawrence Vigouroux, Jordan Beyer, Dara O’Shea and Michael Obafemi.

According to the squad page on Burnley’s official website, O’Shea has been handed the number two shirt following his move from West Brom.

Vigouroux, meanwhile, will wear 29 on the back of his jersey having made the step-up from League Two with Leyton Orient.

Jordan Beyer and Michael Obafemi, two of last season’s loanees who have made a permanent move to East Lancashire, will wear 36 and 45 respectively.

Further additions are expected, with the rumour mill in overdrive in recent weeks, but what squad numbers are available to those who do end up joining Vincent Kompany’s side?

The number 10 shirt is currently up for grabs following the departure of club legend Ashley Barnes, who is now a Norwich City player.

Having said that, pictures from Burnley’s pre-season training appear to show Manuel Benson might have taken the jersey, which would free up the number 17 shirt.

The Clarets remain on the lookout for a new goalkeeper, with Manchester City’s James Trafford strongly linked, so it’s only apt the number one shirt is yet to be filled.

The number five shirt, worn by loanee Taylor Harwood-Bellis in the Championship last season, is also currently empty.

Numbers 23 and 29, previously worn by fellow loanees Nathan Tella and Ian Maatsen, are also vacant.

The likes of Enock Agyei and Wout Weghorst are yet to be allocated numbers.
