Burnley keen on defender
According to reporter Fabrizio Romano, Burnley are keen on Cremonese centre-back Emanuel Aiwu. The 22-year-old, who is an Austria youth international, has caught the eye playing in Serie A this season. Prior to his switch to Italy, he had spells at Admira Wacker and Rapid Wien.
Sheffield United dealt striker blow
Sheffield United’s chances of signing Motherwell youngster Jevan Beattie have been dealt a blow with Premier League outfit Brighton and Hove Albion now swooping in, as per a report by the Daily Record. The promising teenager is said to have been offered a contract by the Blades. However, he is now training with the Seagulls instead.
Coventry City boss speaks out
Coventry City have no plans to sell Viktor Gyokeres this summer according to their boss Mark Robins. The Sky Blues will face a battle to keep hold of the Sweden international in the next transfer window. Robins has said, as per Coventry Live:
“The owner has certainly not expressed a wish to sell anyone, Viktor included. There are people talking all the time and it’s annoying, in fairness, because you have got people trying to do business in the public domain.
“But like I say, he’s under contract for another 12 months, as are a number of the other players so let’s see. Let’s see where it goes.”
