Championship trio, Blackburn Rovers, Fulham and Wolves are all believed to be eyeing up a move for Burnley’s centre back, James Tarkowski, according to The Daily Star.

West Brom and Stoke are also in the chase alongside a host of Championship clubs but Burnley boss, Sean Dyche, is adamant that Tarkowski will not be leaving Turf Moor this month.

Amid Leicester interest for Burnley’s prize asset, Michael Keane, Dyche sees Tarkowski as the man to stand in should Keane depart for the Premier League champions.

Tarkowski signed for The Clarets just under a year ago, but he has struggled for regular game time, largely due to the great form on defensive duo, Ben Mee and Michael Keane.

Any move for Tarkowski could hinge on Burnley bringing in Barnsley centre back, Marc Roberts.

If Dyche could bolster his defensive ranks, then maybe he would allow Tarkowski to leave on loan, but admittedly, it seems very unlikely.

The 24-year-old defender was superb at his old club Brentford, and was one of the standout defenders in the Championship before his switch to Turf Moor.

If one of these Championship clubs can secure a deal for Tarkowski and he can rekindle the form he showcased at the Bees, he would make a massive impact.

Fulham, Wolves and Blackburn fans… Would you like to see Tarkowski arrive at your club? Would he get straight into your team? Let us know your thoughts below!
