Revealed: The FOUR transfer deals Burnley are being tipped to target in January - including former England internationals
Sean Dyche and co have until 11pm on Monday, February 1, to finalise their business ahead of second half of the 2020/21 top-flight season.
With the Clarets recently entering a change of ownership, there is renewed hope of some kind of transfer activity at Turf Moor.
We take a look at the FOUR deals the bookies are tipping Burnley to target this month:
Phil Jones – 6/1
Jones is reportedly attracting plenty of interest from clubs in the lower reaches of the Premier League – including Burnley – and even in the Championship.
It’s been a year since the defender last featured in a Manchester United shirt due to a knee injury and falling out of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans.
Any transfer will most likely be a loan until the end of the season with a compromise needed on both sides to cover his reported £120,000-a-week wages.
The Clarets were directly linked with the 28-year-old last week as he was rumoured to be on Dyche’s list of targets.
Danny Rose – 16/1
Rose hasn’t played a competitive game since appearing for Newcastle United in July against Liverpool during his half-season loan on Tyneside.
Indeed, the England left-back has been frozen out by Jose Mourinho at Tottenham Hotspur after he was omitted from their 25-man squad.
The exclusion has left the 30-year-old in desperate need of a move that will revive his career, which could happen either this month or in the summer when his contract expires.
Spurs will likely command a small fee, should Burnley or any other club for that matter, decide to make a move before the deadline.
Troy Deeney – 12/1
There has been no mention of Deeney leaving Watford, asides from the bookmakers.
Had Vladimir Ivic stayed in charge of the Hornets then this might have been a fully-fledged transfer saga but for now, it seems pretty certain he’ll remain at Vicarage Road.
Andy Carroll – 20/1
Burnley and West Brom are the two clubs listed under Carroll’s name on the betting list, but neither are likely to acquire him.
There have been reported enquires from the Baggies about the Newcastle striker, while the Clarets haven’t been credited with interest at all in the media.
Either way, Magpies boss Steve Bruce has Carroll in his plans after he rolled back the years, leading the line exceptionally at Arsenal in the FA Cup on Saturday.
Up until now however, the 32-year-old’s contract is due to expire at the end of the campaign.
