Tendayi Darikwa: Has impressed since moving to Burnley

Burnley defender Tendayi Darikwa is being tracked by a number of Premier League clubs after impressing at Turf Moor, sources have told www.teamtalk.com.

Darikwa has been earning rave reviews for Burnley since joining the club from Chesterfield in the summer.

The 23-year-old’s performances for Burnley have not gone unnoticed with flocks of scouts from Premier League clubs travelling to Turf Moor to cast a closer eye over Darikwa.

Darikwa can play right-back or midfield and his versatility makes him an attractive proposition to his suitors.

Premier League leaders Leicester City and West Ham United are both thought to be keen on Darikwa and both clubs are understood to be in the market for a new right-back.

Burnley will be keen to keep hold of Darikwa in January as they look to maintain their push for immediate promotion back to the Premier League.
