Burnley should land £9m-rated Englishman to take their attack to the next level

The Burnley fans in the Transfer Tavern are boisterous and so they should be after a phenomenal season will likely result in the Clarets playing European football next season, yes you read that right.  

Sean Dyche has to be regarded as one of the best managers in the Premier League after propelling Burnley from relegation contenders into European dreamers. A lot of credit must go to the manager but the players have worked as a team to achieve wonderful things.

The Burnley punters around the bar aren’t content though and they realize that next season will be a lot harder, with the distraction of Europa League as well as all domestic competitions. Therefore, in order to improve squad quantity and quality, Dyche should look at reuniting with Jay Rodriguez, a player valued at £9 million by Transfer Markt.

The West Brom forward has been one of few that has performed well for the disappointing side, scoring 11 times in 39 appearances. The 28-year-old has put aside his injury woes from Southampton to become a good goalscorer for the Baggies.

Burnley, who let Jay Rodriguez leave Turf Moor in 2012, have gone from strength to strength this season and if they want to at least keep their top 10 status next season, adding players to the team will be a major part in helping that ambition come true.

Landlords Verdict: 

Jay Rodriguez is a hard-working forward who can play in a range of positions, still performing well though.

With lots of interest sure to circle the Englishman after his successful campaign, Burnley should try and force themselves to the front of the queue in order to recapture the striker.
