Burnley turn to Northern Ireland hero Michael McGovern

Burnley are eyeing Northern Ireland hero Michael McGovern.

The Daily Mail says McGovern is a target for Burnley after the Premier League newcomers turned their attention away from Charlton's Nick Pope.

The Clarets saw a bid in excess of £1million turned down by the League One side for the goalkeeper this week.

It means Burnley - who had retained interest in Daniel Bentley before he joined Brentford - have switched their gaze to McGovern, available on a free transfer.

McGovern left Hamilton Academical at the end of last season and is biding his time before agreeing terms elsewhere.
