Burnley to swoop for Man Utd contract rebel Eckersley

Richard Eckersley has rejected a new contract offer at Manchester United.

The Mirror says Eckersley stunned Manchester United yesterday by rejecting a new deal - and Premier League new boys Burnley are now set to sign him.

Right-back Eckersley came through the ranks and was on the brink of a breakthrough at Old Trafford, but wants regular first-team football in the top flight.

The Salford-born 20-year-old will talk with Owen Coyle's Burnley after rejecting a move to QPR.
