HITC Sport understands West Ham, Middlesbrough and Watford are ready to match Burnley's offer.

West Ham United, Middlesbrough and Watford are all ready to match Burnley's offer for Hull City star Robert Snodgras, HITC Sport understands.

The Clarets have offered £7.5million with the rest on appearances, which is a deal better than Middlesbrough's previous offer and more than West Ham have come in with.

However, HITC Sport understands that Burnley would struggle to meet Snodgrass's wage demands - which would not be an issue for West Ham, Boro or indeed Watford - who are also set to join the battle to land his coveted signature.

West Ham have been on Snodgrass's trail all of January and have made three bids, all rejected - but now they know the level they need go to and Hull are fully expecting them to do so.

Middlesbrough too are ready to come back to the table, their previous offer was very close - but Hull coach Marco Silva is understood to have told the club's owners not to sell to Boro, as they are relegation rivals, something they no longer see Burnley as.

Watford have been hovering in the wings with Snodgrass but have been following his progress close in recent weeks and are set to come in too.
