Bournemouth join Birmingham City, Sheffield Wednesday in race for Bailey Peacock-Farrell
Burnley could let Bailey Peacock-Farrell leave on loan this summer ‘if they get a £300,000 fee’, reports Alan Nixon.
Nixon writes in The Sun on Sunday (25.07.21, pg. 62) that Burnley and Northern Ireland goalkeeper Peacock-Farrell could leave on loan this summer.
He’s previously been linked with the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham City though Nixon writes that Bournemouth are now ‘in the chase’.
The Clarets though want a £300,000 loan fee for Peacock-Farrell’s services and Nixon writes how that will likely deter both Birmingham and Sheffield Wednesday, with Bournemouth now eyeing a goalkeeper after Asmir Begovic’s move to Everton.
For Bournemouth, signing Peacock-Farrell on loan for the campaign would be a shrewd signing – the 24-year-old is a Northern Ireland’s no.1 goalkeeper and after playing back-up at Turf Moor since joining he should be raring to get going on a loan deal.
The former Leeds United man would be joining a promotion-chasing team in Bournemouth too. New manager Scott Parker will have his sights set on the top-six next time round but knows he needs a reliable stopper and Peacock-Farrell would be just that.
This supposed £00,000 loan fee, for a worthwhile goalkeeper for the season is a fairly good deal but it will certainly deter the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and for Birmingham, paying that amount for what’d possibly be a second-choice goalkeeper isn’t feasible.
