Burnley keen on Mawson – but back off another Swansea star

Ian Watson

Burnley are reportedly keen to sign Alfie Mawson – but the Clarets have gone cold on another Swansea player.

Sean Dyche has been linked with a move for Sam Clucas having missed out on the midfielder a year ago when he moved to the Liberty Stadium from Hull.

But Sky Sports reports that Burnley “won’t be signing the midfielder at the current stage”.

However, Dyche is still interested in Mawson.

The centre-half was linked with West Ham after the Swans’ relegation but the Hammers focused on other targets after failing to reach an agreement with the Welsh side.

According to Sky Sports, Burnley and Swansea are also some way off an agreement but Dyche is keen to complete a deal before the deadline on August 9.
