Burnley: Nathan Holland attracting Clarets’ interest - Burnley Transfer Rumours

Burnley are reportedly interested in a potential swoop for West Ham youngster Nathan Holland in the current transfer window.

ExWHUemployee on Twitter, who is regarded as a reliable insider source for Irons-focused transfer news, claimed that the Clarets are among several clubs interested in either a loan deal or permanent move for the 22-year-old, who is continuing his recovery from an injury incurred earlier this year [via Hammers.News].

Holland enjoyed a prosperous 2019/20 season, featuring in Premier League games for West Ham against Wolves and Arsenal in December and scoring 12 goals in 13 appearances for the Irons’ under-23 side in Premier League 2.

He joined Oxford on loan in January and netted three times in 12 matches for the U’s, including a 94th-minute equaliser in an FA Cup replay against Newcastle to take the match into extra time.

He sustained a hamstring injury in March just before the lockdown and subsequent curtailing of the League One season and was recalled by West Ham in June before Oxford’s play-off fixtures, which he would have missed anyway due to his convalescence.

Who were the opponents for Sean Dyche's first match as Burnley manager?

Despite Holland’s hugely promising goal return at Premier League 2 level, he has still made just 16 senior appearances in his career and, at 22, could therefore do with finding a club where he will enjoy regular first team football.

There could be a vacancy on the left wing at Burnley in the coming weeks, with Dwight McNeil being odds-on with some bookmakers to join Leicester amid speculation of a potential Turf Moor exit for the 20-year-old. His potential departure would leave Robbie Brady as the only natural left-sided midfield option in Sean Dyche’s squad.

Holland had been enjoying a very promising few months prior to his injury, the length of which could be a concern for prospective suitors. Also, McNeil is 17 months younger than the West Ham winger but has far more top-level experience, having started every Premier League game for Burnley last season.

Would Nathan Holland be a good addition for Burnley?

Yes

Yes

No

If he leaves Turf Moor, Holland would not be on the same level in terms of a direct replacement, although he could be a decent option to have as backup if McNeil can be persuaded to stay.
