Burnley are being linked with a move for Bristol City midfielder Josh Brownhill this January transfer window as they look to add some more creativity to their side.
Daily Mail are reporting that the two sides are locked in talks over a £7 million move for the 24-year-old, who has been a regular within the Robins midfield this season whether he be used centrally or out on the right wing.
The former Manchester United youth player has scored five goals in 26 games this season as his stock continues to rise, and his good performances are beginning to pay off as top-flight sides begin to take an interest.
The midfielder joined Bristol City in 2016 from Preston North End and he has gone on to become a regular within Lee Johnson’s midfield across the past three-and-a-half years, netting 17 goals in 158 appearances for the Robins.

Brownhill isn’t the only player at Ashton Gate that Burnley are taking an interest so far during the transfer window, winger Niclas Eliasson also being a target for Sean Dyche in a bid to improve his Clarets side.
Brownhill would add a creativity and an end product in the final third for Burnley if he was to make the move up north to Turf Moor.
While he would also be a big loss to Bristol City at the same time, the Robins would be netting a good amount of money for the midfielder’s services which can then be spent on a replacement or other areas of the squad.
