Aston Villa striker Nathan Delfouneso is a target for Championship clubs.

The Mirror says the England Under-21 hitman may be allowed out on loan for the rest of the campaign and the Clarets have joined Ipswich in the race for his services.

Burnley recently lost Charlie Austin to a season-ending shoulder injury and boss Eddie Howe knows his team will need a replacement as they look to go up via the play-offs.

Ipswich chief Paul Jewell is also keen on Delfouneso and hopes he can persuade Villa to let the player join him instead.
