Interested clubs will have to pay over the odds if they want to sign Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton this summer.

This is according to the report from the Birmingham Mail.

Several clubs are interested in signing through England international shot stopper but Burnley is adamant that the player would only be sold from £12m or more.

This is despite the fact that the 33-year-old has just one year left on his Burnley contract at the moment.

The aforementioned publication stated that newly promoted Premier League outfit Aston Villa have had a £4m bid rejected for Tom Heaton as the offer is still £8m away from the valuation placed on him by the Clarets.

Aston Villa are the only club to make a bid for Tom Heaton though clubs like Bournemouth and Crystal Palace have also been linked with the experienced shot stopper.

The former European champions are back in the Premier League for the first time in two years after they won the Championship playoff final at the end of last season.

Ex-Manchester United star Heaton has one year left on his contract but he has failed to agree on a new deal with Burnley officials.

He will leave the club for free next summer if the goalkeeper is not sold.
