Bradford Park Avenue manager John Deacey has confirmed that his son, Jordan who currently plays for the newly promoted Blue Square Bet Conference North club is likely to sign for Championship outfit Burnley. It is understood Eddie Howe has been chasing the 18 year old for some time with his father now saying that the Clarets have first option on signing him.
There is however a chance that Doncaster Rovers could also be in the frame to sign the midfielder.
Doncaster played Bradford Park Avenue in a pre-season friendly last week which led to their gaffer, Dean Saunders enquiring about the player.
Deacey told the local Telegraph and Argus:
'Dean asked about Jordan after the game.
'I told him he could speak to the lad or offer him a trial but that he was probably going to Burnley.
'I'm not surprised he asked because I thought Jordan was awesome in the game. He outshone their lad in central midfield - and he was their club captain!
'There were a couple of clubs watching Jordan last season, and he has been here and there playing and training over the summer, but I think he will be going to Burnley.
'They are the club who have first call and it looks like he will be there. But one way or another, it looks like he will be going and that will be a big loss to Park Avenue.
'He has done really well for us but we are a club who will help players move to play at a higher level. We won't stand in anybody's way.'
