Burnley Turn Down Offer For Ex-Man Utd Goalkeeper



Premier League outfit Burnley have reportedly turned down an offer for their goalkeeper according to the publication from the Birmingham Mail.

Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton has been attracting the interest of several Premier League sides this summer after the former Manchester United shot stopper failed to agree on a new contract with the Clarets.

The 33-year-old has one year left on his current deal with the Premier League club.

Newly promoted Premier League side Aston Villa are one of the clubs keen to sign Tom Heaton this summer.

Other English top flight sides like Bournemouth and Crystal Palace have also been linked with a move for the Three Lions of England international goalkeeper.

Of all the interested clubs, only Aston Villa have made an offer for him.

The former European champions made a £4m bid for Tom Heaton and it was deemed insufficient by the Clarets.

Burnley are holding out for £12m for the experienced shot stopper despite the fact that he has one year left on his contract with the club.

Tom Heaton was able to recover well from a long-term shoulder injury last season and his return to the Burnley XI coincided with the good run of form which led to their Premier League survival.
