Burnley boss Dyche lines up move for Celtic midfielder Bitton

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is lining up a move for Celtic midfielder Nir Bitton.

The Sun says Burnley are lining up a cut-price £1million deal for Bitton.

Dyche is a keen admirer of Bitton and wants to try to sign him in January to boost his options in a number of areas.

The versatile 28-year-old, who stands at 6ft 4ins, primarily operates as a centre midfielder but can also play at centre-back.

Bitton's Celtic contract expires in the summer and no new deal has yet been put on the table by the Scottish Premiership champions.
