Burnley should consider making a move for the West Ham United defender.

According to a report from the Mirror, West Ham are willing to listen to offers for Winston Reid this summer, and Sean Dyche should attempt to bring him to Burnley.

The New Zealand international struggled with injuries last term, but when he is fully fit, he is one of the Premier League's best out-and-out central defenders, and he would be a really useful addition to the Clarets squad.

Reid joined West Ham in the summer of 2010, and he has gone on to make 222 appearances in all competitions for the Hammers, whilst establishing himself as somewhat of a fan favourite in east London.

Standing at 6ft 3in tall, the 29-year-old is incredibly strong in the air, but he is also quick along the ground. He is a competent man marker and a well-renowned leader.

His playing style and 100 per cent commitment makes him ideal suited to Dyche's setup at Burnley, and with the small size of their squad, the addition of someone with Reid's Premier League experience would surely prove to be a great asset for them.

The report from the Mirror does not specify how much the Hammers will demand for the centre-back, but he is valued at £6.3 million, according to Transfer Markt, and if Dyche manages to bring him to Turf Moor for somewhere in the region of that price, it could turn out to be a signing of real significance for Burnley.
