​Burnley whizkid McNeil responds to Man Utd, Juventus links

Burnley winger Dwight McNeil has made a lot of headlines since stepping up to the first team with the Clarets.

The England U21 has been thrilling on the left wing, earning comparisons to the likes of Ryan Giggs and Gareth Bale.

The 20-year-old is now on a long term deal at Burnley, and hopes to progress with the Premier League club.

McNeil has spoken about transfer speculation linking him to a bigger club.

He said in an interview with Lancashire Live: "The gaffer calls it outside noise. The main focus for me is to concentrate on the football and let the agents take care of that side.

"I just worry about the footballing side and that is my main aim, I just want to play football week in week out."

On a move to Juventus: "I ignore it mainly and let agents take care of that.

"Nothing was said to me too much which is good as I am a young lad and I don't need that added stuff on my mind."
