West Ham United have increased their offer for Burnley defender James Tarkowski to £30m.

The Hammers are still keen to land the centre back despite having a £27m bid rejected by the Clarets earlier this week.

The 27-year-old has been a consistent performer for Sean Dyche in recent seasons, earning a maiden England call-up in the process.

However, the Burnley boss insists that Tarkowski won’t be leaving Turf Moor unless the price is right, with the ‘Ginger Mourinho’ remarking that the club “aren’t in the business” of selling their best players.

Despite this, Dyche did confirm that every player does have a price – but it feels like West Ham will need to shoot even higher than £30m, with Burnley almost certain to reject the latest offer.
