Boyd To Aston Villa - Heneghan In From Motherwell?

Boyd To Aston Villa - Heneghan In From Motherwell?

George Boyd's next contract is set to come away from Burnley after the out-of-contract midfielder turned down a new one year deal at Turf Moor.

His destination looks as if it'll be the Championship as both Aston Villa and Derby are being linked with Boyd, according to the Birmingham Mail.

Previously his boss at Hull, Steve Bruce could link up with Boyd, 31, once again at Villa Park but as the midfielder is reportedly seeking a three year contract his arrival at Aston Villa isn't assured. Championship rivals Derby have been linked and could compete with Villa but they too would probably baulk at the length of contract demanded?

A regular for Sean Dyche last season - he started 33 of Burney's 38 Premier League games last term - but the fact we wouldn't offer the security Boyd is looking for the Scottish international is set to call time on his Clarets career, dropping down a league in the process.

Boyd could be dropping down but Motherwell's Ben Heneghan may well step up? The Sun reports Burnley are readying a bid of around £300,000 for the Manchester-born ex-Everton and Stoke youth defender.

A year into a two year deal signed when he arrived from Chester FC last summer, Heneghan's performances have caught the eye of Dyche and a couple of Championship clubs, Norwich and Cardiff.

Burnley could reportedly sign Heneghan, 23, and then loan the central defender out for the coming season. If he did arrive at Turf Moor, depending on his progress, should he not be loaned out Dyche would 'slowly filter' him into the first team.
