Wolverhampton Wanderers may have to turn their attention elsewhere for midfield reinforcements this summer, with Josh Brownhill reportedly keen to stay at Burnley.

It was claimed by TEAMtalk over the weekend that the 25-year-old had emerged as a target for a number of Premier League clubs, including Wolves.

Supposedly the club had been scouting Brownhill in recent months, with the star having impressed since his move to Turf Moor from Bristol City.

But Lancashire Live bring some information today about the player.

They claim Brownhill is happy in Lancashire having established himself in Sean Dyche’s starting Xi, and is not ready to push for a departure.

Time to look elsewhere

£40,000-a-week ace Brownhill (Spotrac) would potentially have been a nice addition to the squad.

It seems a move for him this summer for Wolves is likely a non-starter and Fosun will probably need to look at alternatives.

But someone in the Brownhill mould would be good – Wolves’ midfield options don’t really extend beyond technicians at the moment.

Leander Dendoncker provides a physical presence, but isn’t the most mobile, so someone who can get about the pitch and be a ball-winner would be ideal.
