Burnley boss Eddie Howe wants to snap up Arsenal`s powerful young centre-half Kyle Bartley on loan for the season. Who says? None other than Alan Nixon in the Mirror!

Crystal Palace too have also been linked with the 20 year old, so if location is an issue we have already lost out to the London-based player.

He started his professional career with Bolton as a youngster before signing for Arsenal in July 2007 and becoming captain of their Reserves team,

Bartley made his professional debut for Arsenal in December 2009, in a Champions League match against Olympiacos but has yet to make his league debut for Arsenal in the Premier League.

He has had two spells out on loan to Sheffield United and also played for Rangers in the SPL last season on loan before he suffered a knee ligament injury.

Bartley has represented England at both U16 and U17 level so far and seems to be a good prospect.
