BURNLEY'S recruitment drive is gathering pace, with the club now in talks with Liverpool over a move for winger Harry Wilson.

It is understood the Clarets are pushing for a permanent move for the Wales international, who has risen through the ranks at Anfield after first joining the club in the under 9s.

Burnley have been quiet in the summer transfer market so far.

But now that they are on the verge of landing midfielder Dale Stephens on a two-year deal from Brighton they have moved swiftly to the next target.

Wilson, 23, has made just one appearance for Liverpool, against Plymouth in the FA Cup in 2017.

He spent their Premier League title winning season on loan at Bournemouth, where he scored seven goals in 35 appearances, although it was not enough for the Cherries to avoid relegation back to the Championship.

Wilson, who in 2013 became the youngest player to represent Wales - aged 16 years and 207 days, has also had loan spells at Crewe, Hull and Derby

A fee has yet to be agreed between the two clubs.
