The January transfer window opens in England, Scotland and Wales at Saturday, 3 January and will close again on transfer deadline day on Monday, 2 February at 23:00 GMT

Burnley it would appear are still keen to supplement their attack and the latest striker we have been linked with is Huddersfield Town forward James Vaughan. The scouts have now reportedly watched him for the third time,; the latest being at the John Smith’s Stadium for the Championship clash between the Terriers and Bolton Wanderers at the weekend. The story goes that the 26-year-old striker could be on the move in the January transfer window at the right price with Huddersfield believed to be chasing Bradford City striker James Hanson as his replacement. Although having only recently returned from three months out injured, he has notched up 24 goals in 51 Championship starts over the past two seasons and would appear to be a target of Burnley’s former Everton scout Robbie Cooke. Vaughan of course played for Everton between 2004-2011 and is well-known to Cooke. The striker is though still under contract until 2016 and Burnley could also face competition from QPR and Southampton for his signature. The former England U21 international was spotted by Everton`s scouts at the age of nine and came through their academy. His full debut for the Toffees was in April 2005 when he came on as a 73rd-minute substitute for the first team against Crystal Palace. During his time on the books at Goodison Park, he also had loan spells at Derby, Leicester and Crystal Palace. In May 2011, Vaughan signed for newly promoted Premier League club Norwich City on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee but then joined Huddersfield on a season-long loan in August 2012. The move was made permanent in July 2013 after he accepted a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
