West Ham and Leicester City eyeing Championship ace, scouts sent



Premier League duo Leicester City and West Ham are two of several top flight sides to be monitoring Burnley star Tendayi Darikwa, according to TeamTalk.


The 23-year-old, who can play in midfield or at right-back, joined Sean Dyche’s side in the summer after joining from League One side Chesterfield and has been hugely impressive for the Clarets.

Darikwa has established himself as the club’s first choice right-back despite the presence of fellow summer signing Matt Lowton, and his performances are now attracting Premier League interest.

Burnley would undoubtedly hate to lose Darikwa, especially since he only joined the club in the summer, but should a big-money offer come in then it may be too good to turn down for the club or the player.

The Clarets currently sit fifth in the Championship table after collecting 34 points from 19 games, however they are without a win in four league games.

Sean Dyche’s side face Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink’s Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road on Saturday, in what will be a touch match for the Clarets.
