EXCLUSIVE: Burnley agree £10m midfielder deal as Wells departs

Burnley have agreed terms with Bristol City for their captain Josh Brownhill, TEAMtalk can exclusively reveal.

The Clarets have been in talks for a number of weeks to land the 24-year-old midfielder as we exclusively revealed earlier this month– but finally a breakthrough was made on Wednesday night.

A Burnley insider has now confirmed to TEAMtalk that Brownhill is due for a medical at Turf Moor ahead of completing the move, which takes the former Manchester United trainee back to his native North-West.

It is understood the two clubs have agreed a deal worth £10million, which will also see striker Nakhi Wells moving to Ashton Gate.

Wells was recently recalled from a loan spell at QPR, as it became aware that Bristol City were keen on the Bermudan international.

QPR had stated their intent to sign him permanently, but the former Bradford and Huddersfield man will instead line up for their Championship rivals.

The capture of Wells ends Bristol City’s long wait to land a new striker with the club having previously been hopefully of taking Eddie Nketiah from Arsenal following his loan recall at Leeds.
