Zavon Hines could be joining Burnley on a free transfer from West Ham. According to Sky Sports they understand that the former England Under 21 International could already be at Turf Moor discussing terms.

Hines has turned down a new deal at Upton Park by all accounts after working on a week-to-week basis at the club ever since his existing contract expired at the end of last season.

He now looks set to join Burnley on a Bosman although the Hammers would be entitled to compensation having nurtured him through their youth system.

Eddie Howe is understood to be a long-term admirer of 22 year old and indeed the club were linked with him earlier in the year.

Hines has been out of action with a number of injuries though recently and managed just 15 appearances for the Hammers last season but hopefully a medical would resolve any concerns in that department.
