Clarets to Offer 1.5M For Hamilton Academicals Defender James Hamilton
According to reports in the Daily Mail, the Clarets are one of a number of Premier League teams considering a move for Scotland’s rising star Jamie Hamilton. The seventeen year old defender has been playing in the Scottish Premiership this season having broken into Hamilton Academical’s first team.
A stylish, ball-playing centre back, Jamie Hamilton first came to prominence captaining Scotland’s U17 side and has since graduated to the U19 squad, picking up five caps and scoring once. His composed displays have attracted attention from a number of English clubs including Burnley, Brighton Hove Albion, Aston Villa, Everton and Wolves who all regularly send scouts to monitor his progress.
However, Burnley and Brighton are the sides weighing up whether to bid next month with Hamilton Academical looking for around £1.5million for the International defender.
