Report: Burnley among five Premier League clubs considering offers for Bristol City midfielder Josh Brownhill

Manager Sean Dyche of Burnley looks on during the pre season friendly match between Preston North End and Burnley at Deepdale on July 25, 2017 in Preston, England.

Burnley, Bournemouth, Brighton & Hove Albion, Leicester City and Swansea City are all said to be tracking Bristol City's Brownhill.

Burnley are one of five Premier League clubs - alongside Bournemouth, Brighton & Hove Albion, Leicester City and Swansea City - 'considering an offer' for Bristol City's former Preston North End midfielder Josh Brownhill, according to The Sun.

Brownhill only moved to Bristol City from Preston a year ago, but has less than 12 months left on his contract.

And the Warrington-born player could be in line for a swift return to the north west with Burnley, providing the Clarets can fight off the four rival suitors.

A central midfielder by trade, Brownhill has been playing on the right hand side this season, a position Burnley could be looking to strengthen after letting go of George Boyd and Michael Kightly this summer.

But while Sean Dyche's side perhaps hold the geographical advantage, moves to Bournemouth, Brighton, Swansea and Leicester - crowned champions of England 15 months ago - could also appeal to the 21-year-old.

Brownhill previously played under Bristol City boss Lee Johnson at Barnsley, with whom he was promoted from League One in 2015-16.

Could Brownhill leave Bristol City for Burnley, Bournemouth, Brighton, Leicester or Swansea?
