Tom Heaton Interesting Scottish & English Premier League Runners-Up
Clarets former keeper Tom Heaton has been linked with a summer move to another one of his former clubs Manchester United and also Glasgow Celtic. Tom Heaton who is currently second choice at Aston Villa, left Turf Moor eighteen months ago having been replaced by the current Clarets and England number one Nick Pope.
Heaton, suffered a serious knee injury on his return to Turf Moor with Aston Villa more than a year ago and since returning to fitness has found himself behind Emi Martinez in the pecking order for Dean Smith’s side. He is out of contract in the summer and could look for a move away from Villa Park according to reports in the national press.
A move back to Old Trafford would see him as third choice behind Dean Henderson and David De Gea if he remains with the club after interest in a return to Spain, Heaton’s experience and ability reportedly appeals to his former team mate and current United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Glasgow Celtic are said to be interested in taking him to Celtic Park in the summer transfer window, but don’t rule out a move back to Turf Moor should Pope move on to enhance his England career. He was made captain and became a huge fan favourite at Turf Moor and said in an exclusive interview with Lancs Live last year that he would love to return to the club as a coach in the future may be there is a chance of him being player/coach.
