In Focus: Burnley’s £7.5m move for Snodgrass could prove to be a bargain

As reported by The Daily Mail, Burnley have shown significant interest in bringing Hull City’s star midfielder Robert Snodgrass to Turf Moor this January.

What’s the word?

The Clarets may be looking safe from the Premier League drop this season but that isn’t stopping Sean Dyche from seeking reinforcements in this month’s transfer window.

The Mail report that Burnley have tabled a £7.5m offer for Hull City’s red hot midfielder Robert Snodgrass and the Tigers are said to be increasingly resigned to the fact their star man will leave the club.

Snodgrass only has 18 months remaining on his contract at the KCOM Stadium, having rejected a new 3-year deal in December.

Bargain hunt

Robert Snodgrass is one of the in-form players in the Premier League this season, certainly in the bottom half of the table.

The Scotland international has scored a massive nine goals for his club this season, assisting a further three. That’s exceptional when you consider Hull’s 18th position in the league. The 29-year old has scored over half of their league goals total.

It’s that kind of firepower that could catapult Burnley further into the top half of the table. They currently sit in 10th but having scored significantly less goals than the teams immediately above and below them, could certainly improve on their form so far this term.

The reported £7.5m is a drop in the ocean in the Premier League in the current transfer market and a move at that price could prove to be the bargain of the entire transfer window.
