Blues are eyeing a potential loan move for Burnley midfielder Josh Benson, according to The Athletic.

Although only making six appearances for Sean Dyche’s side last season, the 21-year-old is in high demand with Millwall and Luton also interested in gaining his services.

It has already been reported that Barnsley made a £650,000 bid for the youngster, however that was turned down by the Premier League outfit.

The midfielder has two years left on his contract, but a move to the Championship would be beneficial for both parties as he looks to further his development.

If this move was to come off for Blues, this would be the sixth summer signing as Lee Bowyer looks to bolster his squad even further.
