Burnley are reportedly showing interest in former Barcelona and Juventus central defender Pol Garcia, who is currently at Sint-Truiden.

Reports in Belgium claim the Clarets are keen on the 24-year-old Spaniard, who only joined STVV last year.

Garcia impressed in his first campaign with the club, making 24 league starts for the club as they finished seventh in the table but just missed out on the Europa League play-off place.

Het Laatste Nieuws says that Sint-Truiden want to renegotiate Garcia’s contract, which has only one year left on it, but Burnley’s interest has made that more difficult.

The left-sided central defender, who can also operate at left-back or in midfield, began his career with Barcelona before joining Juventus at the age of 16.
