The Burnley fans who are competing in a pool tournament in The Transfer Tavern this evening, are discussing reports linking the club with a move for a new midfielder.
According to a reports from Belgian news outlet HLN Sport, the newly promoted Premier League side have joined Southampton in the race to sign Anderlecht midfielder Steven Defour.
The report suggests that Burnley have made an offer which the hierarchy at Anderlecht are currently considering.
Defour joined Anderlecht for €6 million in 2014 from Porto and has put in some fine performances for the Belgian side since arriving.
Burnley are not the only club interested in taking the 28-year-old this summer with fellow Premier League side Southampton, and United Arab Emirates side Al Jazira also showing concrete interest for the player.
Our landlord thinks Defour would be a fantastic signing for Sean Dyche’s side, and thinks the Clarets are in desperate need of a new midfielder and Defour would fit the bill!
Burnley fans…. What do you think about this? Let us know below!
