Burnley contract offer nowhere near good enough – Tarkowski

Burnley defender James Tarkowski has spoken to The Telegraph and revealed that the offer of a new contract by the club was ‘nowhere near’ one he was going to sign.

The 27-year-old is currently under contract with the Clarets until the summer of 2022, and the club reportedly rejected several offers for his services from West Ham United and Leicester City, all in excess of £30 million. Tarkowski said that the offers were rejected for ‘whatever reason’, but he insists he will remain committed to giving his best on the pitch while with Burnley, despite rejecting the offer of a new deal.

As things stand, Burnley are likely to sanction a sale at the end of this season to avoid the risk of losing him for free, and the two-time England international shouldn’t be short on potential suitors. With many Premier League clubs losing players to injury this season, there are several already in need of defensive reinforcements.
