After reports Brighton where to bring Stephen Ward back to the Amex, news has now filtered through that the move has been hijacked, According to the The Argus.
Ward was set to arrive at the Amex for a medical after the Seagulls had finally agreed a fee with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The 28-year-old was suppose to meet Albion Boss Sami Hyypia and official representatives to finalise the deal but now seems to have had a chance of heart since the introduction of Burnely.
Ward has been at the top of Albion’s shopping list for the left back position all summer following a flourishing loan spell throughout the previous season.
The Seagulls had locked horns with Wolves over agreeing a figure for the defender, grudgingly Albion had agreed to Wolves’ demand for a six-figure fee along with the potential £13,000-a-week wages.
Wolves manager Kenny Jackett spoke yesterday afternoon & confirmed:
“The clubs have agreed and now it’s down to Brighton and the player.”
Now Burnley are thought to have also agreed a fee, of around £500k to steal him from Albion’s grasp and Ward is now expected to finalize a move to Turf Moor instead.
