Burnley are keeping an eye on Shrewsbury Town winger Joshua Ginnelly, according to the Lancashire Telegraph.
Ginnelly, 18, who was only offered his professional contract in March of this year by Shrewsbury has been training with the Clarets during pre-season and if a move is made then he will be bought as a development player, rather than a first-team one at the moment.
The youngster has attracted a lot of interest from several clubs and was on trial last week with Premier League side Norwich City, but he left there and no bid has been made for his services.
Ginnelly initially started his youth career at Aston Villa before moving to Shrewsbury last summer, and despite being seen as a development, he did manage to make three appearances for them.
This could be a good move for Burnley as they look to rebuild after relegation from the Premier League last season, and it would be a good investment if they did make a bid because he is young and has undoubted talent.
The winger already has some experience in the Football League and he could most definitely develop well at a club like Burnley under the management of Sean Dyche.
