Burnley are set to seal the signature of Bolton Wanderers striker Marvin Sordell.
But they are having to be patient as they look to add to their first summer signing.
Sordell is expected to complete a switch to Turf Moor, in a deal worth £600,000 plus add ons.
It was thought the move would go through on Wednesday, but sources close to the newly-named Macron Stadium suggested a deal was close, and the former Watford man himself said: “If it comes along it would be a fantastic opportunity.
“I worked with Sean Dyche a lot at Watford and he’s a very good coach, a very good mentor for players and I’m not surprised Burnley did so well last season.”
However, Derby County have turned down a bid for 27-year-old Scottish midfielder Craig Bryson, and another target, West Brom centre back Craig Dawson, has had a transfer request turned down by the Baggies.
Bryson, who scored 16 goals as the Rams reached the Championship play-off final a month ago, had talks with Burnley on Tuesday regarding a move, but an offer, believed to be £750,000 - the amount in a clause in his contract enabling clubs to speak to the player - was rebuffed, with Derby standing firm over their valuation of around £2m.
Indeed, Derby hope to secure Bryson to a new contract, despite having only signed a three-year deal last May.
A Derby statement said: “Derby County have received an undisclosed bid for midfielder Craig Bryson from Burnley. The offer was immediately rejected.”
QPR are also interested.
Meanwhile, Burnley are thought to be preparing a fresh offer for Dawson, having seen a £1m bid rejected earlier this month.
The former England Under 21 centre back asked to leave the Hawthorns, but his request was immediately turned down.
Albion, under new boss Alan Irvine, expect the player to report for pre-season training on July 7th, with Irvine aiming to cast his eye over his squad before drawing up transfer plans.
Former Rochdale man Dawson is believed to want a move closer to his family, who are based in nearby Norden.
