Burnley want to take Chelsea's Reece James on loan next term - and could have the edge over rivals suitors Crystal Palace and Brighton and Hove Albion, according to the Sun on Sunday (17/03, page 57).
Both Palace and Brighton are said to want to buy the right-back after his impressive spell at Wigan Athletic this season.
But the newspaper claims Burnley are happy take James on loan, which could appeal to Chelsea who were considering sending him overseas on a temporary basis.
The Clarets are, however, keeping an interest in Derby County's Jayden Bogle as an alternative to the 19-year-old England youth international, according to the Sun on Sunday.
James' next move could hinge on which of the interested parties maintain their Premier League status, with Burnley, Crystal Palace and Brighton still involved in the fight for survival.
The newspaper claims Wigan are eyeing James' Chelsea teammate Dujon Sterling as a possible replacement, while centre-back Matt Miazga is also said to be a target for Latics.
Burnley, Crystal Palace, Brighton or other - what would be James' best move?
