HITC Sport understands Burnley are lining up a move for former Watford loanee Daniel Tozser who is available on a free transfer.

HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club that former Watford loanee Daniel Tozser could be set for a move to Burnley.

Tozser enjoyed two loan spells at Watford and he caught the eye during his time at Vicarage Road.

The 30-year-old initially joined Watford on loan from Genoa in January 2012, making 20 appearances for the Hornets.

The Hungarian international joined Parma after his loan spell at Watford, but was immediately loaned back to Watford for two seasons.

Tozser was instrumental in Watford’s successful promotion to the Premier League last season, making 46 appearances and scoring five goals.

The midfield schemer cut short his two-year loan spell despite helping the club win promotion and he is a free agent after leaving Parma as a result of their financial problems.

A number of clubs in England and abroad are thought to have expressed an interest in Tozser, but Burnley are hoping to win the race for his signature.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is thought to be an admirer of Tozser and sees him as a key addition to his squad as he plans a bid for promotion back to the Premier League next season.
