Stoke City’s Nathan Collins is likely to move to Burnley in the transfer window, with the two club’s set to agree a £12m fee for the defender.
The 20-year-old is highly-rated by the Potters after breaking into the team a few years ago, whilst he managed 22 appearances in an injury-hit campaign last time out.
His form in that time has caught the eye, with the Clarets known to be long-term admirers of Collins, and Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United have been linked with the Ireland youth international in the past.
However, it’s Burnley who are set to win the race for the defender, with The Sun revealing that a £12m offer from the Premier League side is set to be accepted by Stoke.

It’s fair to say the prospect of losing the talented youngster has not gone down well with the support, particularly for the fee mentioned.
Here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter…
Why would Nath choose Burnley over Man U? Not talking about the “other interested party” 12 million is laughable
