Joe Worrall On Clarets January Shopping List
According to reports in the Daily Mirror newspaper Premier League Burnley Football Club are set to increase their interest in Nottingham Forest Central defender Joe Worrall after the club is bought out by American sports investors ALK Capital this week.
The takeover will allow manager Sean Dyche to rekindle his interest in the Forest defender Joe Worrall, whilst submitting an improved offer now that the Clarets are planning to return after failing to agree a price for Worrall in the close season. The defender was an ever-present last term and the Sky Bet Championship side value him at £10million.
The defender returned to the side earlier this month after injury and has since been given the armband. Burnley want Worrall in January to groom him as the long-term successor to established defenders Ben Mee and James Tarkowski who has top-flight admirers.
Nottingham Forest have previously regularly sold their star players to fund rebuilds with Matty Cash the latest to go. Joe Worrall is likely to be next to go to give new boss Chris Hughton funds as there is also interest in him from Germany.
