Ashley Barnes: Brighton striker is having a medical at Burnley

Burnley had a £750,000 bid for Barnes rejected by Brighton last week but are now on the verge of completing a deal for the 24-year-old, who was also being watched by Leeds United.

Barnes, who has scored six goals in 24 appearances for Brighton this season, qualifies to represent Austria courtesy of his grandmother and has been called up to represent their Under-20 team.

The striker, who joined Brighton in 2010, began his career in non-league football with Paulton Rovers in the Southern League before joining Plymouth Argyle in 2007 - and has also been on loan at Torquay United.

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
