Clarets Chasing Matej Vydra
According to reports in the Mirror newspaper, Derby County striker Matej Vydra is set to join Burnley as the Clarets look to strengthen their squad. Vydra was set to join Leeds United in an £11Million bid, but their interest is said to have cooled over last season’s Sky Bet Championship golden boot winner’s wage demands.
The Clarets have of Sam Vokes, Ashley Barnes, Chris Wood, Jonathan Walters and Nahki Wells on their books, but are in Europa League competition and need strength in-depth in order to fight on the European and home front after a successful 2017/18 campaign.
Both players are set to under go medicals at their respective new clubs later this evening and if a deal is completed, then Vydra would join Burnley on a permanent deal, whilst Nahki Wells would only join Derby County on a season long loan.
