Burnley boss Brian Laws is hopeful of tying up a deal for French forward Frederic Nimani in the next 24 hours.
The Clarets are currently in talks with Monaco about taking the 21-year-old on loan until the end of the season.
"He is a player that we are talking to and we are hoping to try and do something over the next 24 hours," Laws said.
"We've had talks with (Monaco) and he's trained with us.
"The thing that is important is to get things right first before we start saying we have got this player or that player. But we are tapping into a lot of players and he's one of them.
"We are very confident that things can be worked out but, until everything is signed and sealed, that's as much as I can give."
