‘Several’ Championship clubs are weighing up a loan move for Burnley striker Matej Vydra, a source close to the Clarets has exclusively informed Football League World.
The 27-year-old has struggled to make a real impact since arriving at Turf Moor from Derby County last summer, and has found it hard to cement himself in Sean Dyche’s starting eleven.
Vydra only made 13 appearances in the Premier League last season for Burnley, totalling 371 minutes of action, as per Wyscout, and Football League World have been informed by a source close to the club, that though Burnley are keen to keep the Czech Republic striker, there has been interest from ‘several’ Championship sides regarding a potential loan move.
Burnley have a number of strikers on their books as it stands, including Chris Wood, Ashley Barnes, Nahki Wells, Peter Crouch and new signing Jay Rodriguez, so competition for a starting berth in attack is fierce.
Vydra is no stranger to the Championship, having enjoyed fruitful spells at both Watford and Derby County, with the forward scoring 36 goals at the Hornets during two separate stints at Vicarage Road, whilst notching 21 league goals for the Rams prior to his switch to Burnley.
