IPSWICH Town goalkeeper Bartosz Bilakowski has revealed he almost joined Burnley in the summer.

The Clarets were in the market for goalkeeping reinforcements after the retirement of Paul Robinson and in the end they signed Birmingham City stopper Adam Legzdins.

But Bilakowski has told Polish broadcaster TVP Sport that a move to Turf Moor was 'really close', only for the Clarets and Ipswich to fail to agree a fee.

The 30-year-old has made 102 appearances for The Tractor Boys since arriving at Portman Road in the summer of 2014, and while he admits it was a dream to play in the top flight, he is now focusing on getting into the Premier League via promotion with Ipswich.

On a potential move to Turf Moor this summer, he told TVP Sport: "It was really close, but the clubs did not get along.

"On the one hand: I still dream to be there. On the other hand: I have no regrets because I'm in Ipswich Town.

"Maybe we'll get promoted? Such a scenario would be best."
