Burnley transfer twist with eleventh hour bid for Championship star striker

Reports in the Nottingham Post had suggested that Middlesbrough had been making progress in a bid to sign Britt Assombalonga in the last couple of days, but it’s now believed that Premier League Burnley are right at the front of the mix.


Burnely’s re-introduction to the race to sign the Nottingham Forest player will apparently included an improved cash-offer plus player to help push them ahead of Championship Boro.

Interestingly Assombalonga played under now Burnley boss Sean Dyche during his time as manager at Watford, so if that was a good working relationship it could be enough to sway his choice of club.
