Sean Dyche Interested In Southampton Midfielder Harrison Reed
Burnley Football Club along with newly promoted Norwich City are said to be in the race to sign Southampton midfielder Harrison Reed in the summer, according to reports in the Daily Mail. The young midfielder spent an impressive season on loan at Blackburn Rovers in the Championship and the Clarets want him back in the Premier League.
After last seasons early start in the UEFA Europa League qualifiers which really took its toll on the Clarets players, this season the squad will get a full pre-season which should assist them in terms of pushing up the league table. The lack of a pre-season last season saw the club battling against relegation, but manager Sean Dyche’s brilliance kept them in the premier league.
Sean Dyche will be looking into the transfer market to strengthen a number in all areas, whilst central midfield turned out to be a massive area of concern for the Clarets last term, with Steven Defour, Aaron Lennon, Robbie Brady all injured during the season.
Reed’s future at Southampton is all but over with the Saints well accommodated in that area. Oriol Romeu, Mario Lemina, Pierre Emile Hojberg and Stuart Armstrong all well settled in the centre of midfield. At this stage of his career where he needs to be playing regularly, Burnley would be an ideal destination for him to showcase his talents.
Harrison Reed played in every position across the midfield last season for the Blackburn Rovers and was directly involved in ten goals in all competitions. He is hugely talented and is extremely skilful on the ball. His versatility would give Sean Dyche a number of options next season and his ability to both score and create goals to assist the Clarets climb higher up the Premier League table.
