Burnley are reported to have made an undisclosed offer for Nottingham Forest wide man Jamie Paterson.

Clarets boss Sean Dyche is a long-standing admirer of the 23-year-old, who left Walsall for the City Ground two summers ago.

Paterson has a year left on his current deal, and has made 64 appearances for Forest, scoring 13 goals, but made only seven starts last term.

Dyche said after a 1-1 draw at Forest in Burnley’s promotion season: “I like Paterson, I saw him last year at Walsall. We offered £4.99 for him, but Forest were able to come up with £1m.”
