Clarets Interested In Scotland International Jamie Hamilton
Burnley and Wolverhampton Wanderers are currently weighing up bids for Scotland U17 International captain Jamie Hamilton. The 17-year-old defender has yet to make a first team appearance for his club Hamilton Academical but was on the bench as they faced Livingston in the Scottish Premiership this Saturday.
Hamilton is an elegant, ball-playing centre back who has been compared in style to England international John Stones of Manchester City. He has caught the attention of English scouts with his performances for Scotland U17s.
Hamilton has also been an influential figure for his club’s U19s who made it through to the UEFA Youth League second round after beating Basel earlier this season. The club have high hopes for the centre back but are anticipating offers of around £800,000 which they will find difficult to turn down.
