Burnley are believed to be ready to sell defender Ben Gibson, who has struggled for game-time following his move to Turf Moor.

The former England Under-21 international was a big-money arrival for the Clarets last summer when he joined for a reported £15million from Middlesbrough, but he has struggled due to the form of the likes of Ben Mee and James Tarkowski.

Gibson featured just once in the Premier League last term and it appears Burnley are now ready to move the 26-year-old on, with newly-promoted trio Norwich, Sheffield United and Aston Villa all said to be interested.

Burnley seem happy to just make their money back on Gibson, which means a bid of £15million could be enough to secure the services of the centre-back.

Gibson has previously suggested he is happy to stay and fight for his first-team place at Turf Moor.

However, boss Sean Dyche seems keen to move him on as he looks to reshape his squad ahead of the new season.
