Burnley are interested in signing Henri Bedimo in the summer transfer window, according to French publication L'Equipe, as reported by talkSPORT.

Bedimo is on the books of Lyon at the moment, but the Cameroon international defender will become a free agent at the end of the month when his current contract with the French club runs out.

It has been reported that Burnley, who will play in the Premier League next season after getting promoted from the Championship at the end of the 2015-16 campaign, want to sign the defender on a free transfer this summer.

The Clarets, though, will (reportedly) face competition to secure the services of the 32-year-old left-back.

It has been reported that Premier League rivals Middlesbrough and West Bromwich Albion are also interested in Bedimo, along with Ligue 1 sides AS Monaco and Marseille.

Bedimo created seven chances in 18 Ligue 1 appearances for Lyon this past season. The left-back had a pass accuracy of 82% and a shot accuracy of 60%, and won six headers, 22 dribbles and 23 tackles.
