Burnley in ‘concrete talks’ to sign defensive midfielder – Club want €6m to let him go –
Burnley are in ‘concrete talks’ to sign Sporting midfielder Renato Veiga, with his representatives discussing a possible move to Turf Moor.
That’s according to journalist Dominik Schneider, who says either a permanent deal or a loan move is on the table.
Schneider explains that Veiga is on the list at Borussia Mönchengladbach this summer as they eye up a new defensive midfielder for their squad.
They’re currently focused on finding a back up for Tomas Cvancara, at which point they will turn their attention to a move for Veiga, who has recently returned to Sporting B from a loan spell at Augsburg.
In the meantime, Veiga’s representatives are in concrete talks with Burnley and Basel, who are also keen on the 20-year-old.
Sporting, for their part, are more than open to a deal and are eyeing up a €6m transfer fee if the player is to leave on a permanent basis. A loan with an option to buy is also possible, though.
Which avenue Burnley are going down isn’t mentioned but they’re more than keen and in talks with Veiga’s representatives regarding a move.
