Burnley are interested in signing Blackpool right-back Jordan Gabriel, according to reports.

Vincent Kompany is expected to take charge at Turf Moor following the Clarets’ relegation from the Premier League.

And the Belgian is said to be an admirer of the Blackpool full-back, according to a Patreon report by Alan Nixon.

Gabriel impressed in the Championship last season, making 25 appearances in total for the Seasiders.

The report also suggests that Connor Roberts could leave the club this summer to return to the top-flight.

The Welsh international was a regular starter during the final weeks of last season and is also comfortable playing in a wing-back role.

Matt Lowton is Burnley’s other right-back option but the 33-year-old is set to miss the first two games of the season due to suspension.

Last week, the club confirmed that Ben Mee, James Tarkowski, Erik Pieters, Aaron Lennon, Phil Bardsley and Dale Stephens will all leave the club at the end of their contracts.

Meanwhile, Middlesbrough are reportedly targeting a loan move for former Burnley captain Tom Heaton.

The goalkeeper made 200 appearances during a memorable six-year spell at Turf Moor before heading to Aston Villa in 2019.

He made just one appearance for Manchester United last season, coming off the bench in a Champions League fixture against Young Boys.
