Vancouver Whitecaps​, Montreal Impact chasing Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield

Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield is interesting MLS clubs.

The Sun says Arfield is a target for MLS clubs to make him Canada's biggest home-based star.

Vancouver Whitecaps and Montreal Impact have shown strong interest in making him a 'designated player' for the 2018 season.

As the only Canada international in the Premier League, both clubs are keen on snapping him up as a free agent, with his current contract at Turf Moor set to expire this summer.

The 29-year-old is yet to agree a fresh deal to stay with the Clarets and had West Ham tracking him during the last transfer window along with a number of other Prem clubs.

Hammers boss David Moyes had wanted him during his spell at Sunderland but now faces competition from the MLS to get him without a fee in the summer.
