Burnley close to signing West Ham striker

Reports are suggesting that Burnley manager, Eddie Howe, is poised to make his second signing of the week and pounce for West Ham forward, Zavon Hines.

The 22 year-old is apparently at Turfmoor to sort out negotiations before finalising his Championship switch.

Hines made only 15 appearances for the Hammers last campaign, struggling with a string of injury issues, finding it hard to keep consistent form.

Howe will snap up the former U-21 England international on a free transfer, however West Ham will be due compensation as Hines is a product of their youth system.
