Bright Osayi-Samuel Interesting Clarets Boss Sean Dyche
According reporter Alan Nixon, the Clarets are keeping an eye on the progress of QPR winger Bright Osayi-Samuel, the pacey wide man has made a blistering start to the season for the Hoops under Mark Warburton and they will face a battle to hold on to his services.
Osayi-Samuel was born in Nigeria but moved to England at the age of ten, he started his career at Blackpool Football Club and rose through their youth ranks before making his professional debut in a Championship fixture against Sheffield Wednesday in March 2015.
The Hoops will be eager to see off interest from Burnley in this transfer window at least and keep hold of their rapid winger. Osayi-Samuel has scored five goals and gained five assists in twenty-two appearances in all competitions for the London side this season.
Burnley could potentially use Nakhi Wells as part of a deal to lure him to Turf Moor, with the striker having impressed on loan at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium over the past couple of campaigns. However, he has the likes of Bristol City, Nottingham Forest and Wigan Athletic after him too.
He went on to play seventy-nine games for the Tangerines as a youngster and played a key part in their promotion to Sky Bet League One in 2017. QPR swooped to sign him in September 2017 and he played eighteen times in his first year at the club before playing thirty-five times in all competitions last term.
