Everton are now interested in signing Burnley midfielder Josh Brownhill this summer, though face competition from Premier League rivals.

The 27-year-old has just 12 months left on his current deal at Turf Moor and has attracted the attention of Crystal Palace and Wolves.

Championship clubs Leeds United, Leicester City and Middlesbrough are also interested, however a reunion with Sean Dyche could also be on the cards.

That is according to TEAMtalk, who report that the Burnley star is likely to leave the Lancashire club this summer with a contract extension unlikely.

Brownhill captained Vincent Kompany’s side for much of their Championship-winning campaign last season, scoring seven goals in 41 games for the Clarets.

Sean Dyche must add goals to his Everton side this summer and a reunion with a player who he thinks has ‘boundless energy’ could prove to be a shrewd move.

Dyche managed the 27-year-old during his time at Turf Moor and spoke highly of the midfielder, stating: “He got thrown in at the deep end against Man City playing wide, he took to it – it was a tough night for us but I was really pleased with what he offered, and he’s never really looked back.

Boundless energy, will and desire, and he’s a good footballer. I’ve been really pleased with how he’s come through.”

Brownhill was left out of Burnley’s opening fixture of the Premier League season last week, further indicating that his future may lie away from Turf Moor.

Sean Dyche reunited with defenders Michael Keane and James Tarkowski following his appointment at Goodison Park, as well as winger Dwight McNeil, however the manager is yet to recruit from his former club.

That could be about to change should Everton decide to make an approach for midfielder Josh Brownhill, who could be a very decent signing for the Toffees.
