Huge Burnley takeover update as Sam Allardyce eyes reunion with ex-West Ham favourite at West Brom
The Clarets aren’t back in action until Monday when they welcome Wolves to Turf Moor, so Sean Dyche will be keeping a close eye on results over the weekend.
But just like it is for most top-flight clubs at the moment, what happens on the field isn’t necessarily dictating the headlines.
That is because the January transfer window is just weeks away, or in Burnley’s case, a takeover.
