Burnley are set to land Manchester United midfielder Chris Eagles in a £1.25 million deal.

Despite scoring against Portsmouth and Kaiser Chiefs on United's tour of Africa, 22-year-old Eagles has come to the conclusion that he will have to leave Old Trafford to play regular first-team football, says the Daily Mail.

Eagles is not worried about dropping down to the Championship, having already had impressive spells on loan at Watford and Sheffield Wednesday.
