Clarets Fail to Agree Terms For Anderlecht Goalkeeper

Clarets Fail to Agree Terms For Dutch U21 International Keeper Verbruggen

The Clarets were believed to be close to landing an eighth summer signing this week in the shape of the Netherlands U21 International keeper Bart Verbruggen. Vincent Kompany’s goalkeeping coach Jelle ten Rouwelaar who also joined Anderlecht from NAC Breda two years ago and keen to be reunited with the young prospect.

Belgian sources suggested a deal would be expected to cost the Clarets €5m plus add-ons with a ‘limited’ sell-on percentage. It appears the clubs were unable to reach a compromise on the terms and therefore the deal has fallen through.

Burnley have seen Nick Pope and Wayne Hennessey leave this summer, whilst young keeper Lukas Jensen has joined Accrington Stanley on a season long loan and while Kompany still has Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Will Norris, who played a half each at Shrewsbury Town last Friday night. Kompany is thought to have a few keepers in mind with Ari Muric (Manchester City) and Michael Cooper (Plymouth Argyle) also linked.
