Burnley boss Dyche scouts Stoke midfielder Allen

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is eyeing Stoke City midfielder Joe Allen.

The Mirror says Burnley are mulling over a bid for Allen after boss Sean Dyche made a personal check on the Welsh international.

Dyche was at The Hawthorns on Monday night to see struggling Stoke win at table-toppers West Brom in the Championship.

Welsh midfielder schemer Allen, 29, made his 26th appearance of the campaign in the win and is the Potters' vice-captain.

But he is one of the club's top earners after relegated Stoke fought to keep him on a new deal in 2018 until 2022.

Yet with the club's promotion ambitions having gone up in smoke for the second successive season, Allen may now be sacrificed.
