Burnley, West Brom eyeing Middlesbrough winger Watmore

Duncan Watmore could be on the move from Middlesbrough next month.

Sky Sports says Watmore has a group of clubs interested in him with his short-term Middlesbrough deal up in two weeks.

Premier League duo Burnley and West Brom are both keeping an eye on the forward's situation, alongside Championship sides Watford, Stoke and Swansea.

Middlesbrough have offered the forward a longer-term contract and manager Neil Warnock has said he'd be “stupid" to leave his in-form side having just returned from two serious knee injuries while at Sunderland.

The forward has scored four times in seven appearances since signing the six-week deal last month. Watmore was originally offered training facilities by Warnock, but impressed the 72-year-old.

Watmore would prefer to stay at 'Boro and has enjoyed working with Warnock, but other clubs have made the situation less straight-forward.
