Burnley fail in Assombalonga bid

Burnley have failed in an approach for Nottingham Forest forward Britt Assombalonga, according to the Mail Online.

The Clarets are on the lookout for a new striker with the future of Andre Gray uncertain but have seen their £8m bid rejected by the Championship outfit.

Manager Sean Dyche is pursing the twenty-four year old, who is also wanted by Middlesbrough, after working with him at Watford in the 2011/12 campaign though he did loan him out to both Wealdstone and Braintree Town during that time.

After a successful 2013/14 season with Peterborough United where he scored thirty-three goals in fifty-eight appearances in all competitions and won the Football League Trophy he moved to the City Ground for an initial fee of £5m.

He has racked up sixty-nine appearances for Forest so far, scoring thirty goals but missed fourteenth months of action between February 2015 and April 2016 after sustaining a serious knee injury.
