The Clarets have been linked with a move for 26 year old attacking midfielder,Dean Marney from Hull City.
According to reports in the Hull Daily Mail,the two clubs both of course relegated from the Premier League this season are close to concluding a deal although the move will not be able to officially go through until the summer transfer window opens.
Hull City, in dire financial straits and believed to be £35 million in debt are looking to reduce their wage bill from £38.9m to just £15m next season so a number of players are likely to be leaving in the close season.
Marney still has two years of his contract to run at the KC Stadium but it is understood a transfer fee has been agreed with Hull City acepting a bid by the Clarets. The player though still has to agree personal terms with Burnley and negotiations have yet to take place.The Hull Daily Mail state Marney is to meet with officials at Turf Moor early next week when both clubs will have completed their Premier League fixtures following their final games on Sunday. No further details of the move are available.
Barking-born, Marney came through Tottenham Hotspur's Youth System and made his debut for Spurs in August 2003 against Birmingham City. He never really made his name at White Hart Lane and during his time there had a number of spells out on loan playing for Swindon, QPR, Gillingham and Norwich City.
Hull gaffer, Phil Parkinson signed him in July 2006 for an undisclosed fee and he has since made over 125 appearances for the club.
Marney also has one cap at England Under 21 level.
