Burnley’s Wout Weghorst is set for another loan move away from the club, with German side Hoffenheim looking like the frontrunners to sign the striker.

Vincent Kompany’s side are also nearing the completion of a deal to sign Sander Berge with the Sheffield United midfielder undergoing medical tests today (Tuesday).

Burnley’s move for Aston Villa midfielder Aaron Ramsey is also expected to go through, with only the final details surrounding personal terms and the inclusion of a buy-back clause are left to be sorted.



Booed back with Burnley, no offers received - so what does Wout Weghorst do now?

Weghorst, 31, spent last season on loan at Besiktas and Manchester United — where he scored two goals in 31 appearances — before returning for pre-season at Burnley.

In the Dutchman’s first appearance back with the newly-promoted club, in a pre-season friendly against Genk on July 23, he was booed onto the pitch by a section of fans when he came on as a substitute.

An unnamed club are also rivalling Hoffenheim’s interest in Weghorst.

Should Ramsey and Berge’s moves go through, they will become the 10th and 11th arrivals at Turf Moor this summer and strengthen the central midfield department, a key priority all summer.

Free agent Andros Townsend, though, will not be signing for Burnley. After a contract was offered earlier in the window, and despite proving his fitness and impressing, it was decided that with the number of wingers at the club — and with Burnley still in the market for more — playing opportunities would be more readily available elsewhere.

Burnley are still working on a deal for Troyes winger Wilson Odobert. Their move for Ajax winger Mohamed Daramy has been rivalled by French side Stade Reims.
