Premier League midfielder wanted by Fulham, Hull and West Brom this summer

According to a report by The Sun, Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield is attracting attention from a trio of English clubs this summer.

Premier League outfit West Bromwich Albion want to poach Arfield from Burnley but they will be rivalled for his signature by two Championship sides.

Fulham, who recently missed out on promotion via the play-offs after losing in the semi-final to Reading, have identified Scott Arfield as a top summer target.

Hull City – who were recently relegated from the Premier League – also want the versatile Burnley man, who can play anywhere across the midfield.

Both Championship teams harbour ambitions of winning promotion next season and the 28-year-old has experience of doing just that.

The Canadian international has twice won promotion to the Premier League with Burnley whilst also winning the League One play-off final with Huddersfield Town in 2012.

With just one year left on his current deal with Burnley, these three sides are lining up a swoop with a reported fee of £2.5m likely to be enough to land their man.

It is unlikely that Sean Dyche will be willing to part with his regular first team member but the security of a longer contract might convince Arfield to leave Turf Moor and pursue his career elsewhere.

Tony Pulis is a big fan but Arfield would be promised more playing time at one of the two interested Championship clubs.

Fulham and Hull fans – would you like to sign Scott Arfield? Let us know below…
