Burnley 'On The Verge' Of Making Jeff Hendrick Their New Record Signing

Burnley 'On The Verge' Of Making Jeff Hendrick Their New Record Signing

Jeff Hendrick to Hull City look to be a certainty over the past few days, but as a number of new signings were revealed and no picture of the Derby County player holding up a Hull shirt emerged, it looked like the Tigers may be struggling to secure a deal.

That has proven to be true, as while we knew that Jeff Hendrick had left the Irish squad to discuss terms with a new club, we did not know exactly which club that was and it appears that Burnley are on the verge of completing a deal for one of Ireland's Euro 2016 stars.

That is being reported by The Telegraph who also claim that the fee is £10.5, a club record for Burnley, which would make Hendrick the fifth most expensive Irish signing ever after Robbie Keane, Damien Duff, James McCarthy, and Shane Long.

Burnley are on the verge of a club record £10.5 million deal for Derby County midfielder Jeff Hendrick.

Hendrick has been a target for Burnley all summer with at least four bids being rejected by Derby for the 24-year-old.

But Dyche expects to finally complete the protracted move on deadline day after agreeing a fee with the Championship club.

Hendrick impressed at Euro 2016 for Martin O'Neill and started every game for Ireland in France.

Burnley's previous transfer record was the £8 million spent on Belgium international Steven Defour earlier this month.


It appears to be very close to completion, so Hull City may have turned away from Hendrick after securing the signing of Ryan Mason from Tottenham Hotspur earlier today.

For Hendrick, it would represent an exciting move, the Burnley midfield is a competitive one, especially after the arrival of Steven Defour for a club record fee, but the club are clearly very eager to sign him up as they have had several bids rejected.


The prospect of seeing Hendrick in the Premier League every week is certainly an exciting one for Irish fans, and although Burnley are expected to be in a battle to keep their status as a top-flight club this season, they have made a promising start.
