Chelsea midfielder Jack Cork is edging closer to a decision over his next move.

The Southampton Daily Echo says the Chelsea midfielder is being tracked by a number of clubs this summer, with Southampton understood to have had a bid in the region of £750,000 accepted for the player.

Blackpool are also reportedly after the 21-year-old’s signature, while Burnley, Swansea and now West Ham are said to be keen on him too.

Burnley boss Eddie Howe said, “From Jack’s point of view, now the tournament is over, I’m sure he will want to concentrate on next season and getting himself sorted out, wherever that is.

“I expect things to move on quite quickly now, so we’ll wait and see what happens in the next few days.

“We’re still in there fighting for him and hopefully we can sort something out.”
