Sky Sports are reporting that Burnley have had a second bid for Birmingham striker turned down.

Burnley have been linked with the former Sheffield United striker for past week. However, they have not matched Birmingham’s asking price. That asking price according to Alan Nixon is £12 million.

Burnley are set to welcome Peter Crouch to the club with Sam Vokes going the other way to Stoke as part of a swap plus cash deal.

However, it is believed that Dyche is still after another striker and believes Adams would be a perfect fit for Burnley. Dyche’s side are currently one place and four points above the Premier League’s bottom three.

Birmingham want £12 million for the striker. However, it would be unlikely any deal will happen as Birmingham are under a transfer embargo.

Adams has scored 14 goals for the Blues this season. There has also been interest from Southampton. However, that was for a loan deal something that does not interest Birmingham. If they are to sell him then it will be permanent deal.

It remains to be seen if Burnley will return with a third bid now that Birmingham have set their price. It appears that if Adams is to move the most likely destination will be Turf Moore.

Adams would be a good investment for Burnley, the Lancashire outfit have scored just 25 goals in 24 league games this season. Adams has scored 14 for the Blues this season. He is versatile and can play in either a two or one up front.
