Clarets Expecting £30 Million Bid For Young Midfield
According to reports in the national press, there are a number of Premier League clubs looking to sign Clarets midfielder Dwight McNeil in the next transfer window. Everton, Wolverhampton Wanderers & Leicester City are said to be ready to offer £30 Million for Burnley’s outstanding England U21 International prospect.
The England Under-21 International has become an integral part of Sean Dyche’s first team in the last 18 months having been promoted through the youth ranks. McNeil who began life in Manchester United youth team has recently signed a new long-term deal at Turf Moor which could fend off strong interest for the left-footer.
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodger’s is strongly considering an approach for the player after watching him closely in recent weeks. Sean Dyche admitted earlier in the season that he expects McNeil, who was linked with Newcastle United in the summer will one day “outgrow” the club.
Speaking about the young midfielder Clarets manager Sean Dyche said, “We want him to get recognition because he deserves it he’s a very good player. I mentioned last year the effect he had on the team and I think he’s maturing into himself as a person, not just as a footballer. He’s more relaxed around the group and what he does as a professional and I want him to continue to show that on the pitch.
He remains very humble, he remains driven to what he wants to do and they’re important qualities. He’s got to remain like that to really go to the top, first of all with Burnley and then on to pastures new at a higher level of club.”
