Premier League Burnley have now entered talks with Swansea City over winger Sam Clucas. This is according to report from the Lancashire Telegraph.
Sam Clucas is said to be unhappy at Swansea following a torrid relegation season, just a year after he was relegated with Hull City.
Clucas made 29 appearances for Swansea last season, scoring three goals and assisting once. The season before, with Hull City, he played 37 times, again, scoring three goals and assisting once. In the past two seasons he’s been relegated twice. Could this be his last Premier League lifeline?
Burnley recently lost long serving wide midfielder Scott Arfield to Rangers but he was far from a first choice player at Burnley. Burnley currently have three wingers in Aaron Lennon, Robbie Brady and Johan Berg Gudmundsson at the club, it’ll certainly be interesting to see who will be replaced by Clucas.
Burnley have been watching and admiring Sam Clucas for a while and even tried to sign him from Hull City last season. Unfortunately for the Clarets, they have two bids rejected and Swansea City won the race for him. Although, now Swansea have been relegated they’ve been handed a second chance to sign him.
Despite these talks, no formal offer has been tabled and the two clubs are yet to agree a fee but they are both set to sit down again in the future and resume these talks.
Burnley make their Europa League debut next Thursday and may be hoping to push a deal through for then.
