Top target Snodgrass is firmly in the Clarets sights

23 January 2017 08:15
Hull City have according to various media sources accepted a bid from Burnley, believed to be in the region of £10 million pounds to take the Tigers' Scottish international Robert Snodgrass to Turf Moor.

The Snodgrass deal could be just the icebreaker the Clarets need to capture their various transfer targets in the January window which has now got just six days left to run.

It is still early doors however for Burnley with the Snodgrass deal. West Ham United and Middlesbrough have both previously made bids for the player and may yet be tempted to enter into a bidding war in an effort to capture their man.

Snodgrass according to official Hull sources, is yet to agree personal terms with the Clarets and has not undergone a medical at Turf Moor at the time of writing.

Word coming from East Anglia is that the Clarets are also still in hot pursuit of Norwich wide man Robbie Brady, but Norwich seem unable to decide on an acceptable fee.

Further down the coast at Ipswich, on loan Tom Lawrence of Leicester City is also of interest to Sean Dyche. 

It is reported the former Manchester United forward with a mercurial talent, may be allowed to leave the King Power Stadium for a fee in the region of £1 million pounds.

It seems Burnley are in the mood to seriously strengthen their squad as they look to enjoy an extended FA Cup run and consolidate their place in the EPL.(TEC).
