Report: Hammers eyeing PL midfielder

West Ham are being reported as holding an interest in Burnley midfielder Josh Brownhill.

Teamtalk reports that the 25-year-old is in demand, with a number of clubs battling to secure his signature.

The Irons are said to have scouted Brownhill, as have a clutch of Premier League sides.

Aston Villa, Wolves, Southampton and Crystal Palace have all run the rule over the midfielder and a deal could be in the offing in the summer.

Brownhill arrived at Burnley in January of last year from Bristol City and has gone on to make 36 appearances for the club, scoring one goal.

He is a versatile presence and is capable of playing in central midfield, attacking midfield or on either flank.

It remains to be seen if this interest turns into a bid, but the Irons run the rule over a multitude of players every season.

Burnley would also be in a strong position to negotiate a hefty fee, as Brownhill has a contract that runs until 2024.

  1. So who in midfield would get dropped for him and do you seriously think He would want to sit on the bench when He is already playing first team football.

    • It’s a squad game now days. The only reason we don’t alternate is because we don’t have a strong squad. Bringing in good players such as Brownhill gives us that option. Also, Burnleys’ wages are quite low (for the Premier League) with their highest paid player on 55,000.
