Burnley transfer news: Former striker to be replaced after January move, Man City hold talks with Haaland

Burnley and Leicester City played out the only midweek Premier League game last night with the FA Cup currently taking centre stage.

Burnley missed out on the chance to move out of the bottom three of the Premier League as they lost 2-0 to Leicester City last night.

Three points would have seen Sean Dyche’s side move above Everton, Leeds United and Brentford in the table but defeat means the remain 18th.

“I think we’ve been right on top of our performance levels,” said Dyche.

“A slightly softer one first half at Palace, but a good second half, and tonight we didn’t quite get to the levels we have been.

“We didn’t start right, too many backward passes, too many poor decisions with the ball, no lack of energy, just that lack of clarity really in our play. I mentioned it at half-time and I thought we got a stronger second half, without doing as well as we have done.

“I thought it was edging away to a draw to be honest, it was one that got away from us a little bit with our performance level, because they are still a good outfit and putting on very good players.”

Away from the action on the pitch, there are plenty of transfer stories doing the rounds and here are the headlines from Wednesday’ morning:
