Burnley Interested In Henry
Burnley Football Club are hoping to fight off interest from several Premier League clubs to sign highly-rated Walsall defender Rico Henry. He has been earning excellent reviews for Walsall this season and is likened to former England defender Ashley Cole in playing style.
Henry, who has come through the youth ranks at Walsall has made 24 appearances for the Saddlers so far this season. His standout performances have brought him to the attention of clubs higher up the football pyramid. Premier League Liverpool, Tottenham, Leicester City as well as Championship trio Derby, Brighton and Wolves have all been credited with an interest in Henry.
However, Burnley are ready to firm up their interest in the exciting left-back by making a move for Henry during this month’s transfer window. Sean Dyche is keen to bolster his side’s defensive options as he looks to mount a bid for promotion back to the Premier League and Henry is one of his top targets.
Walsall tied Henry down to a new deal earlier this season, but they are bracing themselves for interest in the youngster before the close of the transfer window.
