It had been rumoured that Leeds midfielder, Andy Clayton was one of Eddie Howe's targets but the 23 year old completed a transfer to Huddersfield Town in midweek rejoining his former United boss Simon Grayson at the newly promoted Championship club after agreeing a three year deal.
There was talk too that Clayton would have been interested in moving to Turf Moor with a fee of £500,000 mooted. The local Lancashire Telegraph though believe Burnley's top priority in signing Jason Shackell from Derby and uncertainity over funds available allowed Huddersfield to nip in and complete the deal.
Burnley will now have to look elsewhere for a midfielder and it is now strongly rumoured that Doncaster Rovers' Brian Stock could now be the fresh target although we have been linked with him in the past including this summer.
Stock is yet another player known by Eddie Howe from his time at Bournemouth when the two used to play together. The 30 year old still has one year of his contract left at Doncaster but now looks eager to play at a higher level.It is thought Stock is keen to leave the Keepmoat following the club's relegation to League One last season. Doncaster have so far insisted that they have had no contact from the Clarets although that may have been due to the fact Burnley were still pursuing their first choice, Clayton.
With Rovers keen to reduce their wage bill following relegation, Stock could be snapped up for a nominal fee or maybe even on a free transfer.
