Hibernian manager John Hughes has revealed that Burnley are interested in signing Scotland striker Steven Fletcher. Fletcher, 22, has already attracted interest from Celtic following Hughes' arrival as the new manager at Easter Road. Referring to Clarets counterpart Owen Coyle, Hughes claimed: "Owen called to give me the heads up that there's an interest there. "He asked me about Fletch and I told him he can compete, he's good in the air, quick and when he gets the ball on that left foot he always hits the target. "Having been travelling yesterday I need to get up to date not only with what's happening regarding Fletch but a number of things so I'll be meeting the chairman and chief executive to discuss a range of matters. "I am a great admirer of Fletch and I'd love to have the opportunity to work with him. "But I also understand football is a business and Hibs run a very good business."
