Chris Wood nears exit

In a bizarre turn of events, it seems as though Burnley are set to sell their third top scorer this season to a direct relegation rival as the New Zealand veteran nears a move to Newcastle United.

Having completed a medical on Tyneside on Wednesday, the striker is now set to complete the move in a deal worth a reported 25 million pounds.

In doing so, he will become the second signing of the new Newcastle United regime, following Kieran Trippier to St James’ Park this January. And though neither are perhaps the glamourous arrivals that Newcastle fans envisioned when they heard of the takeover, if they can keep the club in the top flight, they will prove more than good value for money.

Meanwhile, Burnley may have arranged some transfer business of their own.

Cornet compatriot to Turf Moor?

Following the success of Ivorian Maxwel Cornet since his summer arrival, it seems as though another Ivorian could be arriving in Lancashire in the not too distant future.

This comes as news of an offer for RC Lens midfielder Seko Fofana has emerged from France, with the Clarets having reportedly tabled a 17 million euro (14 million pound) bid for the Ivory Coast man.

Fofana has caught the eye with an array of impressive performances in Ligue 1 this season, and won the Ligue 1 player of the month in September as a reflection of this.

Do Burnley need an all-action midfielder, or are they better off looking for a replacement striker?
