Southampton are finalising a deal for Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez.

The Daily Echo says Saints have reportedly had a £7m bid for Rodriguez accepted by Burnley.

As reported last week, the two clubs were in discussions regarding a deal worth in excess of £6m for the striker.

The Clarets, who are resigned to losing the 22-year-old this summer, had valued the player at £8m.

But with the forward having just one year left on his Turf Moor contract, the Championship side have been willing to accept a smaller sum.
