Local media reports today suggest Lee Grant is not a happy bunny and is preparing to leave the club in the summer.
He is reported to have told boss Eddie Howe that he would rather leave Turf Moor this summer rather than remain second choice to Brian Jensen next season.
Grant, 28 still has two years left on his contract but lost his place to Brian Jensen for the final eight games of the 2010/11 campaign.
Jensen himself chucked a wobbly earlier in the season after losing his place to Grant in October 2010.
He put in a transfer request in December 2010 and was clearly upset the way he had been treated by then Burnley boss, Brian Laws.
New manager, Eddie Howe though convinced him to tear up his transfer request and later gave him a chance in the first team at Grant's expense.
It seems an imposible task to keep both stoppers happy at the moment and it looks like something will eventually have to give.
Burnley are also rumoured to be interested in one of Reading`s young keepers but then we do also need a third-string goalkeeper. If Grant does go though, he could be rapidly promoted to second-choice keeper.
It is unlikely this will be either Adam Federici or Alex McCarthy; the Royals first and second choice keepers.
If the speculation is true then Howe may have his eye on Danish stopper Mikkel Andersen or former Exeter loanee Ben Hamer.
If Grant does want to leave Turf Moor there could be plenty of interest in him.
Nottingham Forest could be one such club if Aston Villa follow up their reported interest in Lee Camp and succeed with a bid.
Grant was also catching the attention of a number of Premier League clubs before signing for Burnley but if he wants to play rather than bench warm he may have to set his sights lower.
