Burnley to re-sign Jay Rodriguez

Burnley are set to re-sign Jay Rodriguez from West Bromwich Albion, according to multiple sources including BBC and Sky Sports.

The striker started his professional career at Turf Moor, and he scored 41 goals in 128 games for the Clarets between 2007 and 2012, when he moved to Southampton. Having produced a very similar outcome for the Saints (35 goals in 125 games), his next stop was West Brom in 2017, with Southampton receiving a £12 million fee. He produced 33 strikes in 89 outings for the Baggies.

The 29-year-old is now set to return to the place where it all began for him, with Burnley preparing an offer of £10 million which would activate his buyout clause. The Clarets are hopeful, though, that they will be allowed to pay £5 million now and £5 million guaranteed in 12 months.

Meanwhile, West Brom might lose another striker this summer with Rafa Benitez keen on taking Salomon Rondon, with whom he worked at Newcastle, to China with him.
