Gray on the move?

Football Transfer Centre

Burnley will be willing to listen to offers for striker Andre Gray when the transfer reopens in less than two months' time. The 25-year-old has just a year left on his previous deal at Turf Moor.

Gray, 25, has played an important role for the Clarets over the course of the season, with his nine league goals helping them stay clear of the dreaded form.

Despite this, the Clarets have yet to negotiate a contract extension with the marksman, who is said to demand a substantial increase on his £30,000-a-week wages.

According to The Mail, Sean Dyche's side could cash in on their leading star in the summer with his contract due to expire at the end of next season.

The Clarets had turned down a £15m bid from West Ham United for their striker earlier in January, and a similar package could be sufficient to prise him away from the Lancashire club.

Gray has been left on the bench for three out of the last four outings, and this has brought a sense of frustration from the player, who would like to play on a regular basis.

Dyche has opted to tweak the forward line in the past few games with Sam Vokes getting his chances alongside Ashley Barnes upfront.

Tottenham Hotspur have recently been credited with an interest in the former Brentford ace as they seek to find a suitable competitor to Harry Kane ahead of the 2017/18 season.
