Burnley are once again being linked with a move to bring Jay Rodriguez back to Turf Moor.

The academy product is set to be a man in demand this summer after missing out on a return to the top flight with West Bromwich Albion last season.

The Clarets, who made a big-money bid to bring the 29-year-old back to his hometown club last summer, are still in the market for Rodriguez according to the Express and Star.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe, who worked with the striker at Turf Moor, is also reportedly keeping a watchful eye on his former player’s next move.

Rodriguez scored 22 goals for the Baggies as they reached the Championship play-offs, losing to promoted Aston Villa in the semi-finals.

He would reportedly be available for significantly less than the £16 million that Burnley bid for his services last summer.

At that point, the Clarets also made a firm move for his West Brom team-mate Craig Dawson, having a £25 million move knocked back for the pair.
