The Mail Online understands that Burnley are set to move for Nottingham Forest midfielder Henri Lansbury as they aim to bounce back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
The Clarets immediate return to the second tier was confirmed at the weekend, despite them picking up maximum points from their clash with Hull City.
Manager Sean Dyche made a move for Lansbury in January, though the Lancashire club’s offer of £3m was rejected by the East Midlands’ club.
The former Arsenal midfielder has scored eleven goals from midfield for Forest this season, taking his tally to twenty-three in one hundred and two appearances for the club in total.
Prior to his move to the City Ground in 2012, the 24 year old had loan spells with Scunthorpe United, Watford, Norwich City and West Ham United while internationally he has scored five goals in sixteen appearances for England’s U21s.
