BURNLEY are being linked with a move for Bolton Wanderers youngster Harry Brockbank. 

The versatile defender is out of contract at the end of month and would be one for the future at Turf Moor. 

Able to play at right back, in central defence or as a holding midfielder, Brockbank is interesting Sean Dyche according to reports in the national media. 

He has made just three first-team appearances for Bolton, featuring during a troubled end to the season that saw them relegated from the Championship amid serious financial problems. 

A host of clubs have been talked about as possible destinations for the Wanderers academy graduate including Brentford, Ipswich and Sunderland. 

Brockbank made just one substitute appearance while on loan at Salford City earlier in the season before making his first-team breakthrough at the University of Bolton Stadium. 

He started the 2-0 defeat at home to Aston Villa on April 19 before keeping his place for the game at Blackburn a few days later, another 2-0 reverse, and then appearing on the final day at Nottingham Forest. 

Brockbank's future will be on the agenda of the new owners at Wanderers, with a takeover set to be finalised in the coming days. 

The Football Ventures consortium should be confirmed as the preferred bidder by the club's administrators early this week.

A £1million injection has already been provided for running costs but the club will have to move quickly to secure the future of some of their younger players, including Brockbank.

Promising midfielder Luca Connell is another player the Clarets have been reportedly keen to take from Bolton. 

The 18-year-old made a real breakthrough last season, his 12 appearances a highlight in a campaign to forget for the club.

As things stand, Celtic appear to be leading the chase for his services however.
