Burnley now keen on deal to bring MLS star to Turf Moor

Vincent Kompany, the manager at Turf Moor, is apparently looking to add a new midfielder to the Premier League.
Burnley are interested in signing a new midfielder for next season, but a trustworthy writer has reported that they aren’t the only team interested in bringing him to the Premier League.

Who has recently joined Burnley?

The Clarets signed 15 new players over the summer, with 13 signing for a fee or for free on a permanent basis, and two more signing on loan for the duration of the season.

Looking ahead to 2024, Vincent Kompany has been connected with a double raid for Sunderland stars Jack Clarke and Daniel Ballard, and while the winger and defender are both on his radar, the manager also wants to bolster his midfield ranks.

New England Revolution central midfielder Noel Buck is a recently developed name who has entered the fold of targets that chiefs could be considering a move for, having caught the eye during his 36 senior appearances since being promoted to the first team (Transfermarkt – Buck statistics).

Noel Buck transfer update

Taking to X, formerly Twitter, The Athletic’s Tom Bogert delivered a transfer update on Noel Buck and claimed that Burnley are one of the clubs looking to secure his services in the top flight.

He wrote: “Latest I’m hearing on New England Revolution, England youth int’l Noel Buck: Teams w/ interest include Arsenal, Burnley, Man City. Bundesliga teams too. Would expect $5-8m [£4-6m] range at least. Winter move? Summer? 1 more year?

How much does Noel Buck earn?

Buck presently earns £900 per week with Clint Peay’s side (New England Revolution salaries), therefore he would be a more than affordable choice for Burnley to sign – he would be the club’s lowest earner (Burnley wages).

As a central midfielder, Arlington’s native contributes on both ends of the field, with the defensive aspect being getting involved in challenges, where he’s won 32 of his tackles so far this season, more than any other of his teammates (FBRef – New England Revolution statistics).

Offensively, the 26-year-old has made 12 goal contributions (ten goals and two assists) throughout his career, demonstrating his ability to get involved in the final third while still protecting his defense in and around his own penalty area.

Furthermore, Buck, who has been dubbed a “sensation” by the media, is a versatile player who has played in eight different positions across the pitch since breaking onto the scene, including everywhere across the midfield and three roles on the frontline, so this should be a no-brainer of a deal to pursue in January.
