Report: Burnley close to agreeing move for Southampton star James Ward-Prowse

Burnley are reportedly close to agreeing a £15m move for Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse from under the noses of Watford.

Burnley have reportedly edged closer to agreeing a £15m move for Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse.

The 23-year-old came through the ranks at St Mary's Stadium and has gone on to make 205 first-team appearances for the club, scoring 12 goals.

In 2016, Ward-Prowse also captained England Under-21s to their first Toulon Tournament victory since 1994.

According to The Sun, the Clarets are in pole position to sign Ward-Prowse permanently, despite Watford having been in the running for the player's signature.

The Hornets were believed to have made a loan offer for Ward-Prowse, with Southampton seemingly not interested in such an arrangement.

Ward-Prowse featured in 30 Premier League games last season, scoring three times.
