I’ve quietly been a long term fan of centre-half James Tarkowski and it seems with the summer transfer rumour mill linking the 26-year-old with Wolverhampton Wanderers this week, I’m not on my own.

Having made his breakthrough at Oldham Athletic having come through their youth ranks, skippering them despite his tender age and inexperience at first team level, he made the switch in 2014 to join up with Championship side Brentford. He significantly impressed at Griffin Park and Burnley came in for him in 2016, paying a reported £3million fee.

With solid Premier League experience under his belt and two caps for England’s international side, the Times claimed on Thursday that we had now made a firm enquiry for his services and it’s believed Burnley would be willing to do a deal, but he wouldn’t come cheap and with potential Leicester City and Everton interest, Sean Dyche would be looking towards a bidding war – hence our approach has been initially rejected.

Reacting on Twitter, plenty of fans liked the idea given his no nonsense approach to defending, yet being comfortable on the ball.
