Watford move for Burnley defender Ben Gibson

Watford are moving for Burnley defender Ben Gibson.

The Sun says Hornets boss Nigel Pearson wants the former Middlesbrough defender who has had a miserable time at Turf Moor since signing for £13million.

Pearson is keen to take Gibson on loan and give him a better chance of first team action at Vicarage Road.

Burnley want Gibson's wages paid in full and Watford are willing to fork out around £40,000-a-week for the rest of the season.

The deal would include an option to buy, although the clubs have not yet agreed on a fee.
