Jonathan Walters: Could return to Potters squad

Burnley have reportedly made an offer for Stoke’s Republic of Ireland forward Jon Walters, who appears unsettled after a lack of playing time. 

The 33-year-old has been at Stoke since 2010, but only managed 13 Premier League starts last campaign under Mark Hughes, scoring four goals in the process.

Walters is contracted to the Potteries for a further 12 months, but the Daily Mail are reporting that Burnley have made an offer of up to £3million for the player.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is keen to bolster his attack, having scored the fewest goals in the Premier League last season bar the three relegated clubs.

The bid comes amid reports that Everton and West Ham are ready to move for Clarets striker Andre Gray, who scored 10 goals last campaign.

Walters made his Republic of Ireland debut against Norway in 2010 and has since scored 14 goals for his country. If he were to move to Lancashire, he would provide competition for Gray, Sam Vokes and Ashley Barnes.
