Benson spent time in the academy at Arsenal before moving to Burnley in 2018.

The Essex-born midfielder has also spent time away on loan at Grimsby Town in League Two to gain experience.

He played 11 times for the Mariners in the season before last before heading back to Burnley.

Benson still has a few years left on his contract at Turf Moor but is on the radar of clubs in the second tier this summer.


A move to the Championship would be a good one for Benson as he would be guaranteed more game time at that level.

His chances of breaking into Burnley’s side in the Premier League are slim next season.

It will be interesting to see if Barnsley make an improved bid over the coming weeks amid fresh interest from Luton, Millwall and Birmingham.
