Burnley’s attempted swoop for Liverpool midfielder Harry Wilson appears to have hit a significant roadblock.
There is still time for the Clarets to get the deal done beyond Monday’s deadline, however, with domestic transfers between Premier League clubs able to be completed up until October 16th.
Wilson scored 7 top flight goals last season whilst on loan at Bournemouth, albeit that couldn’t stop the Cherries from relegation to the Championship.
Burnley were said to be lining up a £15m move for the 23-year-old, who was thought to have been surplus to requirements at Liverpool – but talks appear to have broken down, meaning unless a loan move can be sanctioned, he won’t be heading to Turf Moor.
To make matters even more difficult for the Clarets, Scottish giants Celtic have made their interest known.
Sean Dyche will no doubt be growing frustrated at the lack of activity at Burnley this window, but the embers of any deal for Wilson remain warm whilst the powers that be at Anfield decide whether a loan switch to a Premier League side may be a better option than a permanent departure.
